K1-MET at the FFG female experts workshop

  • “Systemic Innovation Thinking for R&I”
  • 18 – 19 April 2023
  • Vienna

From the circle of female INNOVATORS leadership alumnae and former Laura Bassi Centres of expertise leaders, Maria Thumfart (Project Manager) from K1-MET GmbH was invited to an experimental workshop on 19 April 2023 in Vienna. 

The goal was to try out what a new R&I networking format could look like that would help to effectively address societal challenges and SDG issues. An important aspect of such systemic innovation approaches is to arrive at “better informed questions”. In other words, R&I questions in which the concrete “female actors system” and their needs have already been investigated before the generation of solutions with R&I projects begins. The workshop results were very promising. Therefore the FFG plans to offer the learnings also in the female INNOVATORS Club with activities on the topic of “Systemic Innovation Thinking for R&I”.
