The innovation network "United Innovations" (UI) goes back to the GFFT Manifesto for Research Transfer from 2017 (see https://www.united-innovations.eu/ ). In this call, the GFFT Board of Trustees and honorary members urged that Germany must develop into the absolute top of the innovation countries. Consequently, the fulfillment of this demand could only lie in the establishment of a social network that, on the one hand, encompasses as many partners from research and business as possible and, on the other hand, connects them by means of many beneficial exchange and cooperation formats.
As of 2022, representatives from over 1,000 companies attend the UI events. The content ranges from cybersecurity and digitization to production, logistics and sustainability.
