Innovation Ecosystem Acceleration

Innovation ecosystems – concepts, enabling mechanisms, and development

Inno­va­ti­on eco­sys­tems are key dri­vers of eco­no­mic growth and sus­tainable regio­nal deve­lo­p­ment. TUM Inter­na­tio­nal takes the role of sys­te­mic inter­me­dia­ry and main orchestra­tor of the eco­sys­tem. As such, we bring a holi­stic approach based on inno­va­ti­ve tools to enable and acti­va­te inno­va­ti­on eco­sys­tems across sec­tors, focu­sed on co-crea­ti­on of ide­as across stake­hol­ders and disci­pli­nes. We pro­vi­de stra­te­gic con­sul­tancy, con­cept deve­lo­p­ment, rese­arch, pro­ject plan­ning and manage­ment ser­vices. Some of our refe­rence pro­jects are

(1) Advan­cing Inno­va­ti­on for Sus­tainable Deve­lo­p­ment in Hon­du­ras
(2) Asia Cen­ter of Excel­lence for Smart Tech­no­lo­gies head­quar­te­red in Kua­la Lum­pur, Malay­sia
(3) Indus­try Advi­so­ry Coun­cil at KIU in Geor­gia
(4) Amas­sence — Ama­zo­ni­an Green Clus­ter in Ecua­dor
