ATEC 11

NOVEMBER 12TH
HYBRID EVENT
AACHEN TECHNOLOGY AND
ENTREPRENEURSHIP CONGRESS
DARE THE IMPOSSIBLE.

Theme

Daring the impossible: Flying to the moon, electric light, computers in our hands – technological innovation has always dared to dream big and changed the trajectory of humanity. What can technology do to face the pressing challenges of today?

  1. How might we create zero waste economy?
  2. How can technology strengthen democracy?
  3. What does it take to colonize space?
  4. How might we decentralize power production?
  5. When will we eradicate cancer?
  6. Is it possible to create sustainable capitalism?

We are facing great challenges right now - from global pandemics, to climate change and increasing social inequalities. What potentials do current innovations in technology and entrepreneurship offer to tackle these problems?

At ATEC 2021 we are investigating which entrepreneurial and technical mindset it takes to dare the impossible.

Inspiring speakers from business, politics and academia will share their stories and discuss how technology can be used to tackle humanities most pressing challenges.

What do you think is a seemingly impossible challenge worth solving? Join the conversation on our social media channels and also let us know about your daring projects with the hashtag #DareTheImpossible

Consistent with our theme we are also daring the seemingly impossible by planning ATEC 2021 as a hybrid on site and online event - and we're not just facing the challenge of the global Covid-19 pandemic. Our chosen location for the on-site part of the event is Collective Incubator's new co-working location “Campus Jahrhunderthalle”, which at the moment is still a rather vast construction site.

We are aware of the changing and unpredictable Covid-19 restrictions, and because of this, we are offering a more flexible ticketing method: a Covid-19 Refund Guarantee covering the tickets for the in-person event.

This means that if you purchase a ticket for the in-person event and aren’t able to attend, due to travel or assembly restrictions, your ticket will be converted into a Live Stream ticket and you will get the money difference back.

We hope you're all staying healthy and safe and are looking forward to seeing you all again (on site or online) for this year’s ATEC 11.
