PerspektivForum Deutscher Zukunftspreis
For the first time on May 1-2, 2018, a intergenerational exchange of ideas and experience will take place between Deutscher Zukunftspreis laureates and young students of various academic fields on a platform entitled PerspektivForum Deutscher Zukunftspreis. The students are former prizewinners of the national science competition "Jugend forscht".
Under the title "Digitization as an innovation driver - Opportunities and challenges", the PerspektivForum will focus on a current social topic. Digitization as a megatrend has had an impact on all aspects of life and will thoroughly transform our society in the 21st century.
Dialog partners for the young attendees include, among others, the Deutscher Zukunftspreis 2017 award winners Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sami Haddadin, Dr. Simon Haddadin and Sven Parusel, as well as Prof. Dr. Volker Hohmann and Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Wolfgang Wahlster also Deutscher Zukunftspreis laureates.
In a direct dialog between the honored innovators as well as Jugend forscht alumni as the experts of tomorrow, problems and unconventional solutions for changes in the society of the future will be discussed. Panel discussions, workshops and the direct exchange are to serve as the foundation for new, bold and innovative solutions.
The talented young people will then discuss their ideas with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and present them to guests and representatives of the media.
The event is jointly organized by the Deutscher Zukunftspreis and the foundation Stiftung Jugend forscht e.V. The Google Zukunftswerkstatt has committed to host PerspektivForum.
