Doctor Anja Herrmann-Fankhänel’s lecture attracted attention not only from first-year students but also from professors and associate professors of the Department of Economic Theory, as well as senior students from the Faculty of Economics. Notably, Professor Ostap Vatamaniuk, Associate Professors Tetiana Moriak, and Solomiia Kudyn demonstrated significant interest in the lecture.

During the lecture, students acquired valuable insights into the nature and classifications of innovation, innovative management, innovation systems at different levels, and various types, as well as national approaches to fostering such systems. Doctor Anja Herrmann-Fankhänel shared findings from her academic research, focusing on the analysis and implementation methods of social innovations designed to address pressing acute social issues within the Chemnitz community.
