Franz Waldenberger discusses Global Knowledge Infrastructures


The sheer volume of numbers, data, and facts is growing and the speed of generating scientific knowledge is ever accelerating. As access to knowledge is becoming more global and digital through open-source projects, its reliability, verifiability, and accessibility has been called into question. But establishing a sustainable knowledge infrastructure can also be a key to securing economic growth, welfare, and individual well-being. Together with Thomas Elm (Managing Director Europe, Goodpatch GmbH), DIJ director Franz Waldenberger will discuss how a stable knowledge infrastructure can be created and sufficiently maintained. What are the challenges to providing this infrastructure for and with an intercultural Japanese-German background? What is the potential of the digital transformation for growth and a reliable knowledge infrastructure? This on-site event takes place on September 13 at the Japanese-German Center Berlin as part of the ‘Hiru no kai’ discussion series, organised by the Japanese-German Business Association (DJW).
