The University Innovation Academy

For both Handelsblatt and Goethe University, innovations and a start-up culture are key to the success of our economy. That’s why the two University Innovation Challenge initiators have set up a prestigious national platform dedicated to their promotion: the University Innovation Academy. The Academy nominates exciting projects for the University Innovation Challenge and, together with the jury and the award ceremony’s expert audience, helps to decide the winners in each category.

The Academy forms the heart of this new initiative and comprises representatives of its commercial partner organisations plus leading figures from start-up hubs, incubators and universities across the German-speaking world.
