Science in three minutes – Digital Science Match in Berlin

With the introduction of the Digital Science Match event, this new platform will facilitate exchanges between players across the digital science, business and start-up scene. The event that has been initiated by the Berliner Tagesspiel newspaper and Hamburg's weekly publication "Die Zeit" will take place on October 7, 2015.

During the Digital Science Matches, 100 professors from digital research fields will have the opportunity to present their work in three minutes or less. The goal is to give a brief insight into digital research fields and to provide suggestions for research cooperation, scientific research, sustainable innovations, digital trends and current topics.

Fraunhofer HHI at the stage

Researchers from the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute will also be speaking. Institute's executive directors Professor Dr. Martin Schell and Professor Dr. Thomas Wiegand, as well as Professor Dr.-Ing. Peter Eisert and Professor Dr.-Ing. Slawomir Stanczak will be speaking. Each professor will have three minutes to provide a brief overview of his research.

Covered topics will include Information Theory & Mobile Communications, Computer Vision, Photonics and Compression, and Machine Learning. Other research and development priorities of the Fraunhofer HHI will be highlighted as well.

Competent partner for the industry

The Fraunhofer HHI presents itself at the Digital Science Match not only as a research institute where future communication technologies are developed, but also as a versatile and competent partner for all sectors of industry and business.

All active stakeholders in the digital scene are invited to participate in the Digital Science Match. This applies to students and young professionals as well as the business and scientific communities and start-ups.

Berlin’s Governing Mayor Michael Müller will open the all-day ceremony, which will be held in “Kosmos” (Karl-Marx-Allee 131a) in Berlin-Friedrichshain. The former cinema will host the event and offers enough space for the over 1,000 expected visitors. Having so much IT expertise in such a short time is an unprecedented event.
