DLD Campus
24/05/2018

Regional power

After a successful start last year, Europe's leading innovation conference DLD (Digital, Life, Design) returns to German universities for its regional conference format DLD Campus. Last year, DLD Campus started at the University of Bayreuth, which will once again be the venue on July 12. DLD Campus will also celebrate its premiere in Karlsruhe on July 3. For the second year in a row, DLD founder Steffi Czerny brings her successful conference format to regions outside the major cities.

The format DLD Campus

DLD Campus focuses on regions beyond the big cities and aims to connect the international DLD community with regional entrepreneurs, scientists, politicians and students. The one-day conference promotes the exchange of content on digitisation at a regional level with panel discussions and lectures at German universities. In addition to the conference programme on the DLD stage, numerous companies will invite the participants to an in-depth discussion in the exhibition area.

Innovation region Karlsruhe

On July 3, 2018, DLD Campus will be a guest at the Zentrum für Kunst und Medien (ZKM) in Karlsruhe for the first time. The high density of innovative companies and a cluster of excellent universities make Karlsruhe the ideal DLD Campus destination. In the renowned ZKM, headed by Peter Weibel, a wide variety of representatives from the fields of science and business are expected. Speakers at DLD Campus Karlsruhe include EU Commissioner Günther Oettinger, author Andrew Keen and university professor Marion A. Weissenberger-Eibl, who heads the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research.

Back in Bayreuth

Steffi Czerny and University President of Bayreuth Stefan Leible will host the second DLD Campus Conference on July 12, including the Minister of State for Digital Affairs at the Federal Chancellery, Dorothee Bär. She will talk about how "Digitalization beats urbanization" and digital education in Germany, especially Bavaria. Other prominent guests of DLD Campus Bayreuth are the Swiss-German poet Nora Gomringer, who heads the International Artists' House Villa Concordia in Bamberg since 2010, the renowned journalist and book author ("What would Google do?") Jeff Jarvis and Stefan Mennerich, Media Director at FC Bayern.
