INNcentive is a program jointly run by the Stifterverband and the Faculty of Business Studies and Economics at the University of Bremen to support young innovation researchers. Since 2017, three cohorts of master's students and PhD students have been supported in writing their theses. The program was initiated by Muhamed Kudic (formerly University of Bremen, now University of Siegen) in collaboration with Jutta Günther (University of Bremen) and Gero Stenke (Stifterverband). The implementation and execution of the INNcentiv workshops was actively supported by Jessica Birkholz (University of Bremen) and Bettina Gerhard (Stifterverband).
Now, a modern brochure with many photos portrays the sponsored participants and the workshops. Each of the funded projects is characterized by a high degree of novelty in empirical-quantitative or experimental methods. On September 19 and 20, 2019, the third INNcentive Workshop took place at BreLAB (Bremen Research & Policy Lab). Many graduates are now working independently in science, in companies or through start-ups.
At this year's INNcentive workshop, which will take place online on March 11, 2021, all those funded since 2017 will have the opportunity to present their work, engage in conversation, and network activites.
