Postponed: Innovation Day 2020 in Berlin

Berlin, 18 June 2020

Due to the current difficult situation caused by the global corona pandemic, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy has decided to postpone its Innovation Day for SMEs planned for 18 June 2020 by one year.
The new date is 10 June 2021.

A number of highlights are planned for the next Innovation Day of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) in Berlin on 18 June 2020: Among other things, a comprehensive range of information regarding the reorganisation of the funding conditions in the Central Innovation Programme for SMEs (ZIM) will be provided. A varied stage and lecture programme will address the latest innovation topics, and the “International Area” will broaden the view beyond national borders, especially to our neighbouring country France. In addition, there will be an enormously broad spectrum of successful examples, which, together with local contacts, will be available for inspiration and networking.

More than 300 companies, research institutions and cooperation networks from all over Germany will present new products, processes and services from a wide range of technology areas and sectors whose development has been supported by the BMWi’s open-technology innovation funding. Results of successful projects will be presented, mainly from ZIM, Joint Industrial Research (IGF) and the Innovation Competence Programme (INNO-KOM).

The one-day event offers the opportunity to obtain first-hand information on BMWi’s innovation support, to establish contacts with companies and research institutions and to talk to representatives from politics and government agencies. The programme includes thematic speed pitch sessions, information offerings on national and international innovation promotion, guided tours, innovation policy statements, expert lectures on SME topics and a get-together to round off the day. The venue is the open-air ground of AiF Projekt GmbH in Berlin-Pankow.
