Celebrate 90 years of research with innumerous insights to the digital future
Technology Innovation Science Match celebrates 90 years of excellent research for the digital society of the future focusing on the development work at the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI. Fraunhofer HHI is a world leader in the development of mobile and optical communication networks and systems, fiber optical sensor systems as well as the processing and coding of video signals. Numerous insights into the future of Technology Innovation in one day: Let yourself be inspired by internationally renowned scientists and experts who will highlight major technological trends and innovations of the digital transformation. Celebrate the Anniversary of Innovation with key stakeholders of the digital future in science, politics, economy and society.

The Concept
Science Match is an innovative format for connecting science, business, society, media and new talents. In keynotes high-level German and international scientists will feature their innovations in life sciences. Attracting up to 1000 participants, the target audiences of this event are peers, young professionals, technology industry, venture capital, funding institutions and policy makers. The event will be held in English.

At "Technology Innovation" all participants will be able to get to know each other well and at a level that is scarcely achievable at other events.

  • The best of technological research and application: excellent and well-known scientists will report on cutting-edge research topics and open up to potentially new research collaborations
  • Matching: networking among scientists, investors, companies, start-ups and young professionals
  • Recruiting: young professionals and start-ups in technology sciences

The Organizers
Der Tagesspiegel  – who developed the Science Match format – and the Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institut.

Young Technology Changers
Students and Young Professionals have the opportunity to attend the event free of charge. You can apply here for the Young Digital Changers Scholarship.
