Between research and entrepreneurship of the future: Event in the context of the Science Talks

In times of multiple crises, many of which have economic repercussions, economics attracts considerably greater public attention. Ever since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, economists have been in demand as experts when it comes to coping with the economic consequences of crises and cushioning the impact of recession. Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the phenomena of economic crisis have become part of everyday life in the form of massively rising energy and living costs; at the same time, combating climate change requires a far-reaching transformation. What contribution can science make in this area of tension? And what kind of innovation(s) does future-oriented entrepreneurship need to overcome the crises of our time?
