Knowledge transfer

Location development through knowledge transfer

Students at the Berlin University of Applied Sciences (HTW) work in teams to solve problems posed by regional companies.

In 2014, Multiplicities carried out an initial prototype “Innovation Workshop” on behalf of HTW Berlin and Wista Management GmbH.

It was framed by the seminar and project week offerings of the HTW degree programmes. The questions were concrete, practical tasks provided by local companies from the HTW’s neighbourhood.

The innovation workshop lasted one week, with the question and company contact being developed three to six months in advance by Multiplicities. Multiplicities has been supporting this format at the Schöneweide site since 2015.
