International Innovation Day
Powered by Plug and Play Hamburg
Join us at our International Innovation Day powered by Plug and Play Hamburg and dive deeper into what is necessary for building a smart future. Hamburg is a model region for sustainable urban infrastructure solutions in Europe and in order to successfully identify, develop and implement new technologies of tomorrow, cooperation is key.
Our goal is to build the bridge between you and the broader innovation ecosystem that is essential to drive forward innovation in your cities around the world.
On Thursday, June 10th, 2021 we will hear from international and governmental organizations as well as industry leaders on how to solve urban challenges in the city of the future. Further we’ll explore how innovation can address important challenges in the logistics, mobility, and energy sectors to grow towards a smart and sustainable city.
The City of Hamburg will also showcase the results of the Future Hamburg Award, where the world's best startups were invited to share their solutions to address important urban challenges in different focal areas for the city of the future.
From keynotes to industry panels and tech lightning talks, as well as virtual networking opportunities with the participants - this day will connect you to the change-makers of tomorrow.
