Sharing AI Knowledge and Harnessing the Future of Innovation in a German-US Partnership

Monday, Apr 19, 2021

With a new administration in the US, and elections in Germany later this year, the German-US partnership will need to be re-defined. If done right, there will be opportunities abound for a new transatlantic cooperation and exchange on cutting-edge technologies and their manifold applications in business.

We are delighted to have the US Consul General in Hamburg, Darion Akins, and the German Consul General in San Francisco, Hans-Ulrich Suedbeck, weigh in on the new political framework with their unique transatlantic experience. Leading experts in innovation and AI from both sides of the Atlantic will add their expertise on technology trends, with a focus on sustainability and climate mitigation, including ethical viewpoints of what’s technically possible.

This virtual event will kick-off the German-American Innovation Week, addressing start-ups, SMEs (Mittelstand) and research institutions of both the US and Germany, as well as everybody who is interested in innovation and collaboration between the two countries.

Date: Monday, April 19th, 2021
Time: 1PM to 2:30PM ET (Germany: 19h – 20h CET)
Platform: Zoom Meeting
Cost: Complimentary
