MORE ABOUT JÜRGEN RINK
For some time now, Jürgen has been moderating the “Q&A-Sessions” format for the Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of the “Innovationsland Deutschland” (Germany as a country of innovation) campaign. The ambition of this campaign is to make innovation more tangible through personal stories. Innovations do not only come from universities and laboratories, but from every area of public life. Through the central point of contact, the innovationsland-deutschland.de portal, the innovators themselves have their say. In the form of video reports, interviews or magazine articles, Germany’s most imaginative minds tell their stories. These innovators can be environmental activists, civil engineers, doctors fighting Corona and more . The stories give us courage to become innovative and creative. Regular events, such as the mentioned “Q&A-sessions”, also offer the opportunity to get actively involved.
Jürgen also is a member of the digitalRat.niedersachsen, which has been appointed by the state government of Lower Saxony to shape the digital transformation. This council consists of 18 personalities representing the fields of politics, business, associations, science and research, media, education, ethics, labour and consumer protection.
