Impact Café: Nurturing SSHA Start-Ups : 2 November 2018
Knowledge transfer from Social Sciences, Humanities and the Arts (SSHA) is a topic of growing relevance, the call for “impact” for instance is well known. Other than in Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Intellectual Property Rights play a minor role in SSHA transfer. One of the most popular transfer instruments which is highly appreciated by most politician are start-ups. They do exist in SSHA transfer but there is a request to improve the amount and quality of them. Therefore, the main question of this workshop is: How to nurture SSHA start ups?
The aim of this Humanities Impact Café workshop during the Berlin Science Week, is to increase the understanding of the specifics of SSHA start-ups. It will point out the role of SSHA start-ups and tackle ways of supporting SSHA knowledge transfer in a best possible manner – from research to commercial and non-commercial markets. Based on some inspirational talks on SSHA start-ups, the Impact Café taps into an interactive format that allows instant communication, learning, and orientation on practice-oriented SSHA start up issues. In this way attendees will be enabled for SSHA transfer, especially through start-ups.
