Future Talk by Academia Superior

An entirely new format for discussions is the FutureTalk, which is organized by Bezirksrundschau together with ACADEMIA SUPERIOR. It enables a thematically free and unrestricted discussion by renowned representatives from Upper Austria's economy, science and politics. This allows the creation of new ideas and approaches for the future right at the podium.

Invited to the meeting were: Dr. Manuela Macedonia (Institute of Computer Science at the JKU Linz, neuroscientist); Univ.-Prof. Dr. Meinhard Lukas (Rector JKU, Professor of Civil Law); Univ.-Prof. Dr. Alois Ferscha (Dean of TNF at the JKU Linz, Head of the Institute for Pervasive Computing) and Univ.-Prof. DI Dr. Michael Shamiyeh, MA (Head DOM Research Lab, UFG Linz, Innovator).

Shamiyeh directs attention to three issues:
- Industrial manufacturing and innovation capability presuppose each other.
- There is a need for an entrepreneurial state investing in breakthrough technologies.
- Resource productivity will be THE guiding issue of the future.

The experts discussed with chairman Dr. Michael Strugl and Mag. Thomas Winkler (editor Bezirksrundschau).
