Science and research make a decisive contribution to a resilient society. Through a broad spectrum of knowledge and a targeted exchange of knowledge, challenges can be addressed and solved in a targeted manner. A resilient society uses the problems and changes for its own benefit by adapting flexibly to the new conditions and developing further. To make economic structures resilient as well, we need agile production processes, services and networks. It is important that companies can maintain their supply chains and value networks even in the face of unplannable, short-term shocks and disruptive events.
Use the potential of diversity and strengthen the cohesion between science, business, politics/administration and civil society to be resilient. In the next MeetUp@HM on Feb. 13, 2023, the Center for Research Funding and M:UniverCity will again offer you the opportunity to network, exchange ideas and jointly develop new ideas and research projects.
The topic is still too broad for you and you wonder what you could concretely contribute here? Here are some impulses on the topic from the draft of the Future Strategy for Research and Innovation (BMBF):
- Social cohesion and reliable democratic institutions are central pillars of societal resilience.
- Secure, trustworthy and forward-looking handling of data. In the course of crisis management, data competencies in science, administration, politics and society should be further built up and bundled, and shared data spaces should be created.
- Disinformation through fake news and conspiracy narratives pose a threat to democracy and social cohesion. Identifying, understanding, and combating disinformation require a multidisciplinary approach.
- Strengthen research on extremism, racism, and anti-Semitism, especially with a view to root causes and effective prevention and countermeasures.
- Strengthen social participation, diversity and gender equality in science and research.
- Social innovations help to ensure the social compatibility of transformation and the participation and co-design of those affected in order to fully exploit the potential for innovation.
- Expansion of civil security research.
- IT security: Raising awareness of cyber risks and data protection.
- Application-oriented research in and with municipalities to create equally good living conditions in urban and rural areas.
Why should you take advantage of this opportunity?
- Establish contacts with exciting practice partners from the Munich ecosystem and HM scientists.
- Place your cooperation offers, competence requests or similar in the search-offer exchange. Present your idea/project, as well as your offer and/or request in 4 minutes.
- Discuss the topics that concern you in small groups.
- Work with your newfound contacts to prepare for future federal government solicitations.
Munich University of Applied Sciences' Center for Research Funding & M:UniverCity are looking forward to seeing you!
