Therefore, SAP heavily invests in educational programs to foster and promote education and research and to encourage the next generation to come up with creative ideas and disruptive research topics. The Association for Information Systems is a key partner for SAP in order to reach out to the millennial generation and shape the educational system. By collaborating closely with the academia and engaging early on with the students in co-innovation projects the gap between research and industry can be bridged and the young generation will be well-prepared for today’s competitive job market.
