UIIN shapes the Berlin Innovation Consensus Charter

  • September 4, 2013
[A comment of UIIN Chairman Thorsten Kliewe]


Yesterday Thomas Baaken, Director of the Science-to-Business Marketing Research Centre, and myself went to Berlin to participate in the final event of the 2013 Berlin Innovation Consensus. Of course, we had a good reason to drive 500km to Berlin: UIIN was selected as one of the top 25 projects (out of nearly 400) shaping the future German innovation climate and we were keen to join 200 other invited guests and discuss how to advance innovation in Germany.


The main aim of the Berlin Innovation Consensus is to develop and promote a charter of the 10 most relevant aspects helping to advance the innovation climate in Germany. Initiated by Google, Shell, Deutsche Bank and factory, the project started in June this year with a community sourcing of ideas and projects. Overall, nearly 400 suggestions have been made during the community sourcing phase. The top 25 projects were then selected and discussed by 34 experts from business, science and culture in a 1.5 day event in order to derive the 10 most relevant opportunities for enhancing the innovation culture in Germany.

The 34 experts came from science, business and culture and included, just to name some prominent examples, Dr. Heinrich Arnold (Global Head T-Labs, Deutsche Telekom), Harald Eisenach (Member of the Board, Deutsche Bank), Philipp Justus (Managing Director, Google Germany), Prof. Dr. Dr. Thomas Schildhauer (Director, Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society), Ulrik Nehammer (Chairman of the Board, Coca-Cola Germany), Volker Smid (Chairman the Board, Hewlett-Packard GmbH), Cafer Tosun (SAP Innovation Center, SVP & Managing Director).
