IVAM Hightech Summit 2023

Microtechnologies for a Smart World
May 3 - 4, 2023
in-person
Bochum, Germany

Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum, Am Bergbaumuseum 28, 44791 Bochum, Germany

The IVAM Hightech Summit is a central point in the year where companies from micro and nanotechnology come together and present the latest technologies and products as well as discuss the developments in the future. 

Topic: "Microtechnologies for a Smart World"

Both in industry and increasingly in all areas of society, people and machines are networked on the one hand, and machines are networked with each other on the other. From mining to high-tech laboratories, from our own homes to public spaces, digitization is shaping people's lives. 

We are on a path toward a "Smart World." Microtechnology is a key industry here and makes many developments possible in the first place. At this year's IVAM Hightech Summit you can expect exciting keynote presentations and many new products and technologies that make the world "smarter".

Date and Venue

Our venue is the German Mining Museum in Bochum. The museum was founded on April 01, 1930. From the manageable beginnings of a "Historical Museum of Mining", the world's largest mining museum has evolved over the course of what is now more than 90 years.  

This year's IVAM Hightech Summit will take place on May 03 and May 04, 2023.  Further information on the program and schedule are available here.

The conference language is English.

Interactive workshops

This year, we are additionally offering two interactive workshops parallel to the presentation program.

Workshop AI in SMEs             
Host: Martin Friedrich (Mittelstand Digital Zentrum, Dortmund)
