Building Bridges

The Innovation Region Mittweida (IRM) wants to take the next consistent step towards a new togetherness with hosting The Human Conference.

The initiators City, University and Volksbank Mittweida invite you to start a new era: We want to bring tradition and innovation as well as people and technology closer to each other.

Partakers have the chance to actively be involved and steer the focus of the discussions and overall outcome of the conference.

People from different professional and cultural backgrounds enrich our deliberations; there is a strong will to learn from each other. People are the focus. Especially people, who like to take responsibility for actively shaping the digital transformation. People, who do not merely want to be users of the ongoing technical progress.

Hence, the participants are much more than “just” participants. They and their personal stories are the center of our event. We encourage active involvement of our guests. We offer an innovative program free of repetitive speeches.

The Human Conference offers themes, interactions and interpretations for people from people.

The goal is to develop strong and clear ideas on how to cooperate and embrace future challenges jointly.

We want to build bridges together!
