9 December 2013 Beckurts Awards and Evening Reception at Rotes Rathaus

Germany's leading research organisations present their assets

Following the successful premiere in 2012, this exclusive event will again provide a unique opportunity to learn more about high-performance technologies and spin-off projects from the leading German research organisations - the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the Helmholtz Association, the Leibniz Association and the Max Planck Society - and to get in contact with decision-makers in industry and finance. This showroom of value-chain assets is a perfect platform for bringing together innovative researchers, technology transfer experts, business development venture capital experts, and corporate venture executives. The event starts on 9 December 2013 with an opening plenary session, which will be followed by an initial series of pitches presenting promising spin-offs and technologies in medical technology and Big Data. The Beckurts Awards ceremony and subsequent reception will take place that evening at Berlin's City Hall (Rotes Rathaus).

On 10 December the focus is on partnering. Prescheduled one-to-one meetings will be used as an effective tool to meet the right people, identify new technologies, and initiate promising partnerships. Alongside the partnering event, there will be another pitching session and three exciting conference sessions.
