#17: Science, Innovation Ecosystems

Play episode

…transformation should not only come from outside the systems where impact is sought…but the people working within these systems have to become transformers themselves…”

Meet Jakob, a Counsellor for Innovation, Research and Higher Education at the Royal Danish Embassy in New Delhi. This is one of the 7 such positions which exist in the world for the Danish Government. He helps in building collaboration for Innovation, Science and Higher Education between India and Denmark. I have known Jakob since 2016, when I attended his PhD defence in Copenhagen. His topic of research was “Heroes of the knowledge economy? — Futurity and Anxiety in the Lives of Indian Engineering Students”.

We have had long conversations around such topics and more and this episode brings some of them to the fore.

He appeared in Episode 17 of Season 2 talking about Science, Innovation Ecosystems
