Voices from the Future Award

“What I liked about the Future Convention was the many inspiring conversations with a wide variety of people. No matter if other participants or experts, you could take a lot out of all the conversations. For me, the diversity of the audience was particularly exciting. Getting feedback from people from different areas was extremely valuable.”

Markus Mosig, Future Award special prize winner 2019

The Future Award offers a great stage for exhibiting your own university/college projects as well as getting in touch with company representatives and other creative students. For me, the Future Convention is a great event where networking and innovation are very important.”

Janine Weirich, Future Award Finalist 2019

“The exchange with a change of perspective by the many different people from numerous industries and study courses is particularly exciting at the Future Convention. Because in the future it will be important to think in networks in order to be able to design and develop holistically.”
