Forum Digital Technologies

Visibility - Networking - Results Transfer

Forum Digital Technologies (FDT) serves as a networking platform and exhibition space for outstanding research projects and innovations in the field of digital future technologies from Germany. The forum supports the technology programs and funding projects of the "Development of Digital Technologies" department with a variety of tailored offers and services, including:

  • Showroom and event space in the heart of Berlin, available to projects.
  • Curated exhibition of demonstrators from current and completed research projects.
  • Networking events and marketing formats tailored to project needs.
  • National and international roadshows for increased visibility and exchange with user communities.

The primary goal is to increase visibility for projects from various technology programs of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), as well as to promote exchange with relevant stakeholders and facilitate result transfer at national and international levels.

Support for Result Transfer

There is a particular focus on the exploitation of research results and their transfer to the economy, particularly to the German medium-sized businesses. The forum supports projects in their exploitation activities and complements the measures of accompanying research with specially developed formats such as national roadshows, demo days, spotlight events, and coaching sessions.

The Forum Digital Technologies is jointly operated on behalf of the BMWK by:
German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence GmbH (consortium leader)
Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute
