Innovation Expert Circle 2018-06-14T06:32:10+00:00


RWTH Aachen University Expert Circle for Technology and Innovation Managers.

Our RWTH TIM Innovation Circle is an exclusive network for a selected group of innovation practitioners, who want to collaborate with the RWTH TIM Group in the framework of a sponsoring membership.

The main objectives of our network are the connection between innovation managers, in a setting in which you can discuss with your peers, learn about best practices from executive speakers, learn about latest trends from innovation research, and build relationships.

The yearly membership fee amounts to 4.900 Euro. This fee is used to support the education and research of our students and doctoral students.

Furthermore, the possibility exists to jointly define additional research topics, and hence initiate research in the framework of the innovation roundtable.

  • Participation in a minimum of three exclusive expert meetings per year with special topics. Topics are agreed between the members of the roundtable and the TIM group each year.
  • Free participation in the yearly conference “Aachener Innovationsplattform”.
  • Privileged tender for bachelor and master theses, internships, or job offers in cooperation with the TIM group on the chair’s websites and the chair’s teaching oriented information.
  • 40% discount on publications and studies of the chair.
