The Leistungszentrum Elektroniksysteme (LZE) hosted the #inNUEvation innovation conference.
At the conference, guests from research, business and politics engaged intensively with the topic of innovations from various perspectives. The conference itself was also an innovation by the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and the two Fraunhofer Institutes IIS and IISB, which jointly developed this format for the first time on the LZE platform. For two days, international guests from places including Bangalore, Cambridge, Exeter, Stanford and Paris joined high-ranking representatives from the world of industry to exchange ideas and viewpoints on the topics of digitalization and innovation research, and in particular the future technologies of artificial intelligence and 5G. The keynote was delivered by Prof. Dieter Kempf, President of the Federation of German Industries (BDI). In addition, there was an official delegation from Taiwan, with whom we laid the groundwork for an international collaboration in the context of the JOSEPHS® innovation laboratory.
The guests agreed that, from a worldwide perspective, the Nuremberg metropolitan area has ideal conditions as a strong innovation region. But it is also about actually realizing this potential – to take the “NO” out of the word inNOvation. The first #inNUEvation conference gave a kick-start to this process.
