As hosts, Prof. Ingo Liefner and ICCR Chair for Indian Studies Prof. Balkrishna Rao welcomed internationally leading scientists in the field of Frugal Innovation from Germany and the Netherlands. In addition, representatives from the Faculties of Mechanical and Civil Engineering and Geodesy at LUH participated, along with Economic Geography. The workshop took place in the premises of Werkhof near Schneiderberg.
During the workshop, the state and future of the research field of Advanced Frugal Innovation and Frugal Innovation were discussed. Different perspectives as well as new findings in the research field were presented and afterwards discussed in a lively and constructive way. In particular, the workshop benefited from the interdisciplinary exchange between social scientists and engineers. Bringing together the perspectives of these disciplines is a rarity not only in this research field, but is of great benefit to the research field.
In addition to the scientific exchange, the workshop also provided a basis for further publications and research. Thus, in addition to joint publications, the work on joint interdisciplinary research proposals is also a result of the workshop.
Prof. Brem and Dr. Agarwal joined as representatives of the Institute of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Science (ENI).
