futureSAX Innovation Forum

The futureSAX Innovation Forum act as an impulse event for small and medium-sized enterprises and, as a content-oriented format, are primarily aimed at entrepreneurs, but also at scientists and knowledge and technology transfer players.

The event takes place twice a year and is organised throughout Saxony. The futureSAX Innovation Forum 1 primarily serves to inform and exchange information about the various innovation processes and their possibilities. In the second futureSAX Innovation Forum of the year, a key technology will be selected and looked at from new perspectives in order to make cross-industry application potential visible.

Along a central theme, the participants exchange information intensively in interactive formats and thus benefit from each other. The topics pursue cross-industry aspects and focus on the potential of cross-innovations. The Innovation Forums thus offer entrepreneurs and scientists various opportunities to talk to each other in order to gain new impulses and establish contacts across industries.

The next futureSAX Innovation Forum takes place on 02.04.2020 in Mittweida. Here you reach to the event. (information are currently available in German.)
