Herrenhausen Konferenz

The New Role of the State for the Emergence and Diffusion of Innovation

Uwe Cantner (Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Deutschland), Dirk Fornahl (Universität Bremen, Deutschland) und Stefan Kuhlmann (Universität Twente, Niederlande) haben eine Herrenhäuser Konferenz zum Thema "The New Role of the State for the Emergence and Diffusion of Innovation" organisiert. Diese fand vom 20. bis 22. Februar 2019 in Hannover statt und wurde durch die Volkswagen Stiftung gefördert.

Hintergrund waren aktuelle Diskussionen zur Rolle des Staates bei Innovationsprozessen. Der Staat hat in Wissensgesellschaften ganz allgemein, sowie in Bezug auf die Generierung und Verbreitung von Innovationen im Speziellen, immer eher eine zurückhaltende Rolle gespielt. In der aktuellen Zeit der Krise(n) wurde diese Rolle zu einem brisanten Thema in zahlreichen sozialwissenschaftlichen Disziplinen. Die Konferenz bot hierfür eine breite Plattform der Diskussion, zu der führende Experten aus der ganzen Welt erschienen sind. 

Die Konferenzthemen im Überblick:

  • Session 1: Does innovation (policy) matter for (economic) growth?
  • Session 2: Societal Transitions and Grand Societal Challenges
  • Session 3: Multiple Roles of the State in Coping with Innovations
  • Session 4: Corporatism and Cooperation
  • Session 5: Policy Instruments to Support Innovative Changes
  • Session 6: Innovation Policy as Inclusive Strategy
  • Debate: "The role of the state is solely defined as curing market or system failures" vs. " Government shall not infringe upon market forces"
  • Interactive Debate: “How must innovation policy be balanced to deal with economic, ecological, societal and developmental issues?”
  • Lightning Talks von zehn ausgewählten Nachwuchswissenschaftlern
  • Workshop am Freitag (22. Februar) mit jungen Wissenschaftlern, um die Ergebnisse der Konferenz in einem Memorandum zusammenzufassen

Einige Vorträge stellen wir Ihnen in Form von Audiodateien hier zur Verfügung.

Session 1: Does innovation (policy) matter for (economic) growth?

The innovation growth connection is a traditional one. In what sense can this notion be kept alive – in what sense does it need refinement or even reorientation? What is the Role of the State herein and what means of innovation policy are the proper ones?

Session 3: Multiple roles for the state in coping with innovations

Which role(s) has the state to play in innovation policy in the future? This relates to the old debate on state vs. market or on centralized vs. decentralized planning or autoctratic vs. democratic decision making. In this context, we also need to reflect on what we mean by ‘state’ and ‘statehood’ in the 21st Century as well as new state dimensions such as ‘new publicness’, like in the sharing economy.
