Representatives of the nine BMBF Research Campuses met on October 8/9 on the occasion of the 6th workshop of the funding initiative on the research campus ARENA 2036 in Stuttgart. This time, the topic was "Successful with start-ups and SMEs". After an introduction by host Peter Fröschle and BMBF Division Head Dr. Otto Bode, the participants exchanged their opinions and experiences in a series of discussions and workshops, which were stimulated by several inspiring keynotes and pitches. Of course, the participants also took a tour through the gigantic campus hall (see photo) with its impressive projects and exhibits, and a lot of networking took place at the evening event. A successful event indeed!
