The recent visit of the Brandenburg’s Minister of Science, Research, and Culture, Dr. Manja Schüle at VEINLAND turned out to be an interesting economic-political exchange session. In order to effectively address the issue of skilled worker shortage, existing barriers, challenges and possible solutions were discussed. Opinions were also shared regarding Knowledge (KT) and Know-how-Transfer. The minister emphasized that many universities and research institutions in the state of Brandenburg are innovative pacesetters for the economy and society.
Furthermore, these places serve as a great platform for innovation, discovery of future technologies, scientific debates and discussions. In order to further enhance the cooperation between economy and business, Brandenburg has become the first federal state to introduce Transfer-Strategy since 2017.
The minister’s visit was informative and is believed to be the beginning of more conversations, meetings and events in the future, which will be organized together with the German Association for Small and Medium-sized Businesses (Der Mittelstand, BVMW e.V.). Companies interested in the Transfer Strategy can get an insight into various ways and opportunities that the federal state has to offer, said Birgit Derwanz-Dahlmann from the German Association for Small and Medium-sized Businesses (Der Mittelstand, BVMW e.V.). The importance of inspiring and motivating younger generation to be part of companies in Brandenburg was also highlighted.
