We are honoured that our nudging initiative was awarded as one of Germany`s best "100 ideas for education, science and innovation" by the Stifterverband. We are looking forward to the upcoming months of interaction with the "Wirkung hoch 100" extended network. Nudging for innovation: How we are fuelling the Third Mission with gentle "nudging" (in German: Nudging for innovation: Wie wir mit sanften "Stupsern"die Dritte Mission befeuern) was selected as one of 100 funding projects from the more than 500 applications.
The researchers from our S2BMRC Team, have conducted various studies on nudges and how they promote university-business and university-society collaboration as part of the third mission. Within the Wirkung Hoch community it is our goal to find support for the adoption of nudges in a network of higher education institutions. In collaboration with higher institutions around Germany, together with coaching and mentoring from the Wirkung Hoch community, we belief we can make a real impact. Join us to complement third mission policies with nudges, to engage academics, companies and citizens to collaborate on innovation.
Nudging is the PhD research topic of Eva Sormani, therfore; S2B aims to get in-depth understanding of principles and underlying mechanisms of nduging. Nevertheless, transferring this knowledge and making it applicable is as least as important. Being part of the incubation from the Stifterverband helps us to reach practice impact beyond research excellence.
