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 students of RWTH Business School.

Founded in 2016 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.

Six formerly independent research groups at RWTH Aachen University joined forces establishing the TIME Research Area.
