How can the innovation force of the Ruhr region be strenghened, and what are the main features of a regional innovation strategy? Around 230 stakeholders from politics, economy, science and administration discussed these questions last Thursday, 9 February, within the “Wissensgipfel Ruhr” in Duisburg.

city2science led a workshop session on “Social Innovation” – the topic attracted 60 participants and was therefore the largest workshop out of four worskhop sessions.

Besides the workshop session Annette Klinkert moderated a panel discussion on innovation within the Ruhr region. For more impressions and the programme, please visit the website of the Ruhr Regional Association (only available in German).
