Communities, Culture and Placemaking
The talk delves into the influence of culture, communities, and placemaking in nurturing innovative ecosystems. Drawing from decades of experience in Linz and his engagement with creative industries and cultural projects globally, Christopher Lindinger initiates a conversation about the necessity to reorient innovation policies and regional attitudes. Typically, these policies prioritize the harvesting of innovations while neglecting the underlying ecosystem—the soil that supports the growth of these innovations.

Christopher Lindinger is an innovation researcher, computer scientist and cultural manager. He was co-director of the Ars Electronica Futurelab in Linz until he was appointed Vice Rector at the JKU Linz in 2019. On October 1, 2023, he took up a professorship for Art & Digitality at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg.
