Elke aus dem Moore took up the position of director at Akademie Schloss Solitude in May this year. After completing her first five months in the post, she describes her vision for the Akademie and outlines future changes.
The approximately 1,000-square-meter experimental area of Bosch in Renningen serves the researchers as a place where they can develop new ideas - across disciplines and irrespective of the organizational structure of the company or the day-to-day work in the office and laboratory. The special thing about Platform 12, however, is the exchange of thoughts and ideas with artists. The aim of the three partners – Robert Bosch GmbH, Akademie Schloss Solitude and Wimmelforschung – is to establish a new form of innovation culture through the exchange of thoughts and ideas between the worlds of research and art.
