The annual „Forum for excellent young scientists“, organized by Stiftung Industrieforschung in cooperation with Humboldt-Innovation, offers an opportunity to young researchers to present their original research results as well as solutions relevant to practical problems. This year´s Forum focuses on the topic: Digitalization in Life Sciences.
Life sciences cover a wide spectrum: from biology, chemistry, medicine, agriculture, food science to production and environmental technology. Digitalization is one of today’s megatrends: Innovative digital technologies in the health sector contribute to a more reliable diagnosis and medical care. The digital transformation of agriculture increases productivity and resources are used more efficiently. Networking between people, machines, sensors and software has created new and innovative technical possibilities. Digitalization in life sciences will be a driving force in improving today’s world, economically as well as ecologically.
6 researchers will be invited to pitch their idea in front of the panel on November 16, 2016, at Erwin Schröder-Zentrum in Berlin Adlershof. The top three participants will be awarded 10,000 euros each by Stiftung Industrieforschung, to support their respective research projects. The remaining participants will be awarded 2,000 euros.
