A Transatlantic Dialogue on Data-Driven Innovation

Data-driven technology has already begun upending the way we do business, science, and how we communicate in the 21st century. Much like crude oil in past industrial and technological revolutions, data has become a coveted resource that requires extraction and refinement. Concerns about privacy and security seem to conflict with the vast potential for technological and scientific innovation. As with historical paradigm shifts, data-driven innovation demands a new way of thinking and increased international and intersectoral collaboration.

The DWIH New York and German American Chamber of Commerce, Inc. invite you to a panel discussion and networking event, which will be opened by Volker Bouffier, Minister President of the State of Hessen. A visiting German delegation from the state of Hessen of targeted experts will provide US-based attendees a prime opportunity to network and exchange.

Bringing together academics, industry professionals, regulators and technology partners from both sides of the Atlantic, the event will highlight successful use cases of data-driven tech and forecast the future of industry and science in the age of digital innovation.
