4th Heidelberg Innovation Forum: Call for Papers open

The call for papers for the next Heidelberg Innovation Forum "Europe's innovative convention for the commercialisation and financing of IT research projects" is now open. The central theme of the fourth Heidelberg Innovation Forum on 24/25 April 2007 will be "IT Solutions for Innovative Industries".

Around 100 top IT decision makers from Europe's automotive and mechanical engineering industries and approximately 50 IT researchers are expected to attend. The venues will be the tradition-steeped Villa Bosch close to Heidelberg Castle and Palais Prinz Carl in Heidelberg's old town.

The first three events held in 2005 and 2006 were a great success with researchers and industry representatives alike. Since 2005 transfer business has been successfully realised in spin-offs, licensing business and public-private R&D-partnerships.

IT researchers have the opportunity to

  • present attractive R&D results with high application potential in industry to relevant licensees, to venture capitalists for seed investments and to partners for marketing strategies (matchmaking);
  • present new research projects and ideas for which you are seeking suitable investors and partners in industry (project pitch);
  • foster personal contacts with decision makers from enterprises as well as with colleagues (networking).

IT researchers that would like to present their research results at the Heidelberg Innovation Forum can apply as follows:

  • In response to our call for proposals, please submit one or more proposals for the presentation of R&D results and/or project ideas using the reply form available at http://www.mfg-innovation.com/mfg-hif-call.html by 12 January 2007 at the latest. The conference fee of EUR 350 plus VAT will be waived for all those invited to attend. The project selection process will be completed by the beginning of February.
  • In addition, if you support us by advertising the Heidelberg Innovation Forum with decision makers in industry, hotel accommodation in Heidelberg can also be booked at our expense. Please refer to the reply form for full details.
  • A professional coaching workshop is offered on 9 March 2007 to presenters of the Heidelberg Innovation Forum. It is to be conducted by Ms Tanja Fury, Auxell Coaching.

The Heidelberg Innovation Forum is sponsored by the State of Baden- Württemberg and the European Media Laboratory, the research institute for trendsetting information technology established by SAP founder Dr Klaus Tschira. Based on the current concept of Open Innovation (Harvard), it offers a unique platform for matchmaking between researchers and decision makers in industry who are on the lookout for new ideas. Representatives from the world of science can profit from the event to canvas for third-party funds, thus ensuring the stability of their own financial position.

For further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Bernd Janson, Project Manager (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., phone +49 (0)711 / 90715-329).
