Message from the Spokesperson

Dr. Christian Haslbeck - Spokesperson of the Bavarian Research and Innovation Agency

Dr. Chris­ti­an Hasl­beck
Spo­kes­per­son of the Bava­ri­an Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Agen­cy

None of us is as smart as all of us.”

This sen­tence, which was coined by the Ame­ri­can entre­pre­neur Ken­neth H. Blan­chard, is an apt leit­mo­tif for the work of the Bava­ri­an Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Agen­cy. For the last nine years, the agen­cy and its five part­ners have been a reli­able point of con­tact for Bava­ri­an sta­ke­hol­ders see­king to suc­cess­ful­ly rea­li­se their inno­va­ti­ve ide­as. The com­mon goal of all part­ners is to offer effi­ci­ent assi­s­tan­ce in rea­li­sing rese­arch and inno­va­ti­on pro­jec­ts. The ran­ge of ser­vices offe­red by the Bava­ri­an Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Agen­cy is tailo­red to pro­vi­de sci­en­tists and com­pa­nies with inte­gra­ted sup­port to their inno­va­ti­ve pro­jec­ts – from con­cep­ti­on of the pro­ject idea through to its imple­men­ta­ti­on.

A total of 190 dedi­ca­ted employees at the two sites in Munich and Nur­em­berg stri­ve every day to make rese­arch and inno­va­ti­on in Bava­ria ever more trans­pa­rent and effi­ci­ent. This is how the Bava­ri­an Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Agen­cy seeks to con­tri­bu­te to con­so­li­da­ting and expan­ding on the pionee­ring posi­ti­on of the high-tech sta­te of Bava­ria when it comes to trail­bla­zing tech­no­lo­gies of the future.

In order to ensu­re the suc­cess of inno­va­ti­ve ide­as, each of the five part­ners makes its own spe­ci­fic con­tri­bu­ti­on, accord­ing to the mot­to: ’spe­cia­li­sed, but coope­ra­ti­ve and coor­di­na­ted’. This would not be pos­si­ble wit­hout clo­se and trus­ting col­la­bo­ra­ti­on and coor­di­na­ti­on bet­ween the five part­ners. The col­la­bo­ra­ti­ve ethos has been built up over the years and is high­ly suc­cess­ful in prac­tice. In my role as Mana­ging Direc­tor of the Bava­ri­an Rese­arch Foun­da­ti­on, I am loo­king for­ward to con­ti­nuing to imple­ment this blue­print for suc­cess in the tra­di­ti­on of my pre­de­ces­sors Mar­tin Rei­chel (Bava­ri­an Rese­arch Alli­an­ce) and Dr. Rai­ner Seß­ner (Bay­ern Inno­va­tiv). In 2019, I will be delight­ed to take on the role of spo­kes­per­son for the part­nership, which is the only one of its kind in Ger­ma­ny.
