Interview with Univ.-Prof. Carmen Leicht-Scholten: Promoting Sustainable Science & Innovation [German]


Making science, research and industry fit for the future is only possible if the conditions in science organisations are improved in a targeted manner so that students and researchers are optimally prepared to address increasingly complex, global challenges. The Stifterverband acts as a driving force in the fields of education, science and innovation through their pioneering funding programmes and the awarding of prizes. How do such programmes work at a university such as RWTH Aachen University, which regularly and successfully participates in calls for proposals and competitions of the Stifterverband? In a recent interview for Deutschlandfunk, Univ.-Prof. Carmen Leicht-Scholten (head of GDI) and other representatives of RWTH Aachen answered this questions [German only].
