Program Apply & Innovate – TECH WEEKS

Get an overview of the program

This year, too, we have compiled a versatile and appealing programme from the numerous lecture submissions that you can look forward to. The special feature of 2020 is that you can view our lectures on demand and watch them as often as you like. 

Over a period of six weeks, starting September 22, we upload weekly video presentations on various topics. In our program you can already view the publication week of the individual lectures as well as the name and company of our speakers. 

To remember the release date, you can also add a reminder to your Outlook calendar by clicking on the blue colored indication with the release week.
