Digital Symposium "Vertrauen in Zukunftstechnologien"

Digital Symposium "Trust in Future Technologies" on 4th March 2021 (in German)

Source: BAM

In 2021, BAM is celebrating its 150th anniversary. Since 1871, BAM has been ensuring safety in technology and chemistry. To mark this occasion, we will hold several online events throughout the year. We are kicking off our anniversary with a digital symposium on future technologies. The symposium will be held in German.

Digital symposium
'Trust in Future Technologies'

How can future technologies help solve grand challenges, such as climate change, while preserving our prosperity? How do we ensure the safety of new materials, products and processes? How can science create trust in its results in a post-truth age? And how can start-ups establish themselves in structurally conservative industries?

These are the topics of the digital symposium "Trust in Future Technologies", with which BAM will celebrate its 150th anniversary on March 4, 2021.
