Since 2017, the IVAM Hightech Summit has been a central point in the year where companies from micro and nanotechnology come together and present the latest developments and products as well as discuss the challenges in the future. Probably the greatest challenges at present, but also in the future, are, for example, coping with climate change and the shortage of raw materials and the resulting necessary adaptation of our way of working and living. Microtechnology is a key player in developing solutions to these global problems. That's why the theme of this year's Hightech Summit is sustainability. You can expect exciting keynote presentations and many new products and technologies. Book your participation now for May 05, 2022!
This year, the Hightech Summit will be held as a face-to-face event. Our venue is the Dortmunder U. Formerly the basement high-rise of the Dortmunder Union Brewery and production site for beer, the building was put to a new use as a center for art and creativity in 2010 after 82 years of its existence. It was handed over to the public as part of the European Capital of Culture RUHR.2010 and is thus also a symbol of sustainable use of formerly industrial buildings.
On the eve of the Hightech Summit, May 04, 2022, we also cordially invite you to a get-together starting at 6:00 p.m. (CEST), also in the Dortmunder U. Food and drinks will be provided. When booking your ticket, please make sure to include the get-together if you want to attend. Thank you very much!
The event will take place under 3G conditions. Compliance with the existing distance and hygiene rules is guaranteed.
The conference language is English.
The central aim of the event is to establish efficient contacts. IVAM members and members of partner networks will have the opportunity to present their products, find customers, suppliers and research partners and talk about upcoming projects.
The event will center on a microtechnology conference. Managed by the IVAM focus groups and partner networks, there will be different sessions on topics such as sustainability in microfluidics, medical technology, wearables or organic electronics. Further topics, e.g. optics/photonics or corporate social responsibility and sustainability in management processes are addressed. During a Get-Together, which will take place on the evening before the conference, you will have the opportunity to make contacts and network in a relaxed atmosphere.
Find business partners, conduct initial customer meetings or win partners for new research projects: in addition to interesting presentations, you will have the opportunity to exchange ideas bilaterally during the conference.
