Sino-German Lecture Series on Entrepreneurship & Innovation

The Tongji University and the Entrepreneurship Hub of the TU Braunschweig are striving for a synergetic cooperation in the field of teaching entrepreneurship knowledge in order to support joint start-up projects. The planned series of lectures is intended to teach the skills in a systematic way, on the one hand to provide the audience with the essential methodical skills needed to start up a start-up and on the other hand to motivate them to take an entrepreneurial path. The focus will be on topics that are relevant in an international, and especially in a German-Chinese context. The aim is to sensitize German and Chinese students and academics to entrepreneurship and, above all, to show the possibilities and potentials that joint German-Chinese start-ups represent. This is a first essential step in the framework of planned long-term cooperation projects in the field of entrepreneurship between Tongji University and TU Braunschweig. A total of six online lectures are planned. Half of them will be initiated and conducted by the Chinese and half by the German side.
