Czech-German Innovation Festival 2019

The German-Czech Innovation Festival (CGIF) presents innovations, science, new technologies and creative industries from the Czech Republic and offers a broad Czech-German platform for innovative business and academic cooperation.

Talks and workshops will focus on visions for innovations and Czech-German cooperation or how we can profit from interfaces between science and business. The event will open with a presentation of the new Czech government strategy for research and development (R&D) support "The Czech Republic. The Land for the Future". Among other projects presented will be ESA BIC Prague, the new incubation centre by European Space Agency in the Czech Republic, together with other activities in SPACE and AEROSPACE. Some of the best Czech Startups will show their talent and compete in the Czech Startup Pitch. Part of the CGIF will also be the interactive exhibition Czech Innovation Expo. The Festival will close with an evening networking event.
