When designing research and innovation policy an internationally comparative perspective plays an important role. The exchange with other countries provides an essential foundation for information gathering and allows to discuss common challenges and to learn from each other. The presentation will focus on impulses for German research and innovation policy which have been obtained during a nearly two-week trip to Japan and South Korea in September 2015 through interviews and workshops with representatives from science, business and politics.
Gisela Philipsenburg studied economics with a focus on East Asian Economic Studies /Japan in Duisburg, Germany and Soka, Japan. Subsequently she worked for one year for the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Japan before she returned to Duisburg-Essen University to write her dissertation on institutional change in the Japanese innovation system.
