University of Stuttgart has successfully acquired the "Young Entrepreneurs in Science Campus" certificate

March 5, 2021

YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS IN SCIENCE CAMPUS is a certificate developed by the Falling Walls Foundation, which recognizes partner institutions that promote entrepreneurship in science and research through their participation in the initiative.

The certificate "Young Entrepreneurs in Science Campus" is an expression of the sustainable commitment to start-up awareness at the award-winning university or research institution. The basis for the award of the certificate is the fulfillment of quality standards in the application and implementation of awareness-raising activities in cooperation with Young Entrepreneurs in Science. From the date of acquisition, the certificate is valid for one year and can be renewed by re-examining the commitment to start-up awareness through Young Entrepreneurs in Science.

"The Falling Walls Foundation's Young Entrepreneurs in Science program raises awareness among doctoral students about entrepreneurship as an attractive career path. We at the Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innvation Science at the University of Stuttgart would like to support this project, as there is a lot of potential for business start-ups in research projects, and we are pleased to be an official Young Entrepreneurs in Science Campus." (Prof. Alexander Brem)

YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS IN SCIENCE aims to spark a cultural change - towards more creativity, more courage for the transfer of innovative technologies and concepts, and more acceptance of research careers beyond the professorship. Through interactive workshops, the initiative cultivates entrepreneurial thinking and action among young scientists and strengthens networks of entrepreneurs and decision-makers.

"We are pleased that the University of Stuttgart has been certified by the Falling Walls Foundation as one of six universities in Germany as a Young Entrepreneurs in Science Campus. The Graduate Academy supports the initiative for more entrepreneurship in science and research by including events on start-up topics in its qualification program and awards one credit point for participation." (Dr. Jürgen Hädrich, Head of the Graduate Academy GRADUS)

The next event, "From PhD to Innovator: How much of an entrepreneur is in you?" will take place April 29-30.
