HAMBURG ECONOMIC DIALOG ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2018

Blockchain - Technologies as a basis for social innovation

We cordially invite you to our next Hamburg Economic Dialog on September 11, 2018, at 6 pm. Together with the host NXP Semiconductors Germany, we look forward to discussing this exciting topic with you and a panel of experts: "Blockchain - Technologies as a basis for social innovation".

Blockchain technology has been classified by the World Economic Forum as one of the six most important megatrends. So far, the technology has become known through the cryptocurrency Bitcoin and is increasingly used in the financial sector.

What can Blockchain do for us? Where is the use of this new technology conceivable in the future?

Experts are already certain that Blockchain will change various areas. There is talk of so-called smart contracts, i.e. business agreements that are processed automatically via the blockchain. Further fields of application could be the production of food, the reduction of bureaucratic costs in customs clearance or intralogistics.

At the Hamburg Economic Dialog, we would like to discuss with you and our experts on the podium which further scenarios could soon become reality and what effects this could have on our existing industries.

FIFTH HAMBURG ECONOMIC DIALOG - APRIL 2018

Hamburg Economic Dialog Examines 3D Printing

On April 16, 2018, the NIT invited representatives from business, industry, and science to the fifth Hamburg Economic Dialog to discuss the challenges of 3D printing and its effects on production.

First, the participants had the opportunity to explore the Fraunhofer IAPT, which is known worldwide as one of the leading institutes in the field of 3D printing.

Dr. Claus Emmelmann, Managing Director of Fraunhofer IAPT and Professor and Director of the Institute for Laser and System Technologies at TUHH, then presented the opportunities of 3D printing for the industry.

To demonstrate this, he presented printed components that have already been installed in Airbus aircraft. Verena Fritzsche, Managing Director of NIT, led the evening and conveyed the urgency for companies to deal with digitization. In order to raise awareness, the participants were encouraged to reflect on how concrete applications of digitalization could look in their own company.

The magic of start-ups - why companies scrape for founders

At the end of January, representatives from industry and science met to discuss the start-up trend at the fourth Hamburg Economic Dialog.

THIRD HAMBURG ECONOMIC DIALOG - SEPTEMBER 2017

Digital Leadership - Opportunities, Visions and Everyday Life

In cooperation with DIVSI Deutsches Institut für Vertrauen und Sicherheit im Internet. Hosted by Bucerius Law School.
Everything is becoming digital and put into the network. The influence of the digitization increases and affects our everyday life, both professionally and personally. How shall we handle this challenge in our work environment? Do these new processes have an impact on the leading culture of top managers in Germany?

What is the right way to get all stakeholder, including the chairmen, on board? And: What are the differences between the leading culture in a traditional company in contrast to a start-up? We will answer these and other questions during the 3rd Hamburg Economic Dialog.

SECOND HAMBURG ECONOMIC DIALOG

Digitization Capital Hamburg – Opportunity or burden?

“Digitization Capital Hamburg – Opportunity or Liability?” was the subject of the NIT Northern Institute of Technology Management’s Second Hamburg Economic Dialog. Where do we stand on the climate of innovation? What can be done politically to promote it? How will society develop if work is to be considered differently? SMB entrepreneurs and executives from Hamburg discussed these topics with startups and politicians.

Christian Günner, head of the customer service and systems development at Hamburg Wasser, revealed in a keynote speech what potential a big infrastructure company can offer to a digital city. Daniel Rebhorn, a managing partner of e-commerce service provider diconium Group, looked at Hamburg’s potential using various perspectives and case studies.
