More than a letter: EC becomes IEC!
A short outlook into 2021: There is a lot going on! We are in the middle of a change process and position ourselves more broadly. Innovation and entrepreneurship are inseparably linked to each other and together important drivers for our future. By adding innovation to the core of our center, we integrate numerous actors into our ecosystem who contribute to our society with their ideas. The new LMU Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center (LMU IEC) aims at promoting interdisciplinary and international dialogue between founders, researchers, universities and companies to find innovative answers to the societal challenges of our time. We develop strong partnerships within and outside the LMU. To this end, we are expanding our scientific network while building bridges between research and practice.
We are very pleased to continue and intensify the successful cooperation with our long-standing partner German Entrepreneurship GmbH. Together with German Entrepreneurship, we bring together startups and corporates with scientists and thus enable implementation of research results into practice. LMU IEC and German Entrepreneurship continue to jointly operate the LMU IEC Accelerator and contribute to shape the Munich startup and innovation ecosystem by networking students, startups, entrepreneurs and researchers in the startup and innovation scene.
Stay tuned for more information on new opportunities and developments at the IEC! The whole team wishes you Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year!
