An Interactive Innovation Talk

„Innovative Tuesday“ is a networking format between the local economy, researchers and students in the field of innovation. On a Tuesday evening a month we welcome all those interested in innovation and innovation management at the INC Invention Center at the RWTH Aachen Campus. We are looking for exciting discussions with speakers from business and science as well as other participants from the region of Aachen on various aspects of the topic of technology and innovation management. All events will be held in English to promote the exchange even beyond the national border and involve the international students of RWTH Aachen University.

Founded in 2017 RWTH Business School provides management education for executives and young professionals.

The IHK Aachen is a public corporation and represents the interests of around 76,000 member companies from industry, commerce and services.

Silver Innovation, or: Don’t fear the walking dead – Innovation for the fastest growing and most misunderstood consumer market segment

Germany is among the three “super-aged nations” of the world. Surprisingly, innovators are not focusing on the baby boomers or even on the silent generation, but on the generations X, Y, and Z. This, despite the proven higher buying power of the older cohorts and, at the same time, the lower number of competing companies. What needs to be changed in innovation management to be a successful player in the “longevity economy”?
Medcom International is Germany’s leading consulting firm focusing on innovation for aging markets.
