BTU: High-tech for structural change – iCampµs invites companies to transfer conference

March 11, 2024. From May 14 to 16, 2024, research institutions and companies will discuss and develop new project ideas: The first iCampµs Cottbus Conference (iCCC) provides the framework for technological innovations to advance structural change in Lusatia. The iCCC2024 is organized by the “Innovationscampus Elektronik und Mikrosensorik” (iCampus), one of the major initiatives funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

A wide range of innovations have already been successfully realized within the iCampus. For example, the researchers have launched microsensor applications for a medical radar system, optical skin screening and predictive machine maintenance. All of these developments were the result of close collaboration between scientific institutions and companies. And this is exactly where the conference comes in: “We have two goals: We want to drive forward the networking of business and science in the areas of microsensor technology and digitalization, as well as present companies with novel technologies and the latest trends in sustainable business management – both from BTU and from the partner institutes of the Leibniz Association, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and Thiem-Research GmbH,” explains iCampus innovation manager Dr.

In addition to the CEOs of Bosch Sensortec and LEAG and the digital heads of Deutsche Bahn and BASF, speakers from Charité, IBM and Schindler will also be taking part in the iCCC2024 conference, along with top-class representatives from the world of science.

In the accompanying exhibition, participants can find out more about the scientific highlights from Lusatia and the Lusatia Science Park. They can get a taste of the roadshow at the Mittelstand-Digital Zentrum Spreeland and actively experience augmented reality and virtual reality. The conference dinner will be opened by science cabaret artist Vince Ebert. He will present “With common sense through digitalization”.

The iCampus, a research cooperation on the topic of microsensor technology, combines the application-oriented expertise of non-university research institutions and the research strength of Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg (BTU). The aim is to establish products in the field of microsensor technology and digitalization together with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Lusatia. The iCampus concentrates on the four focus areas “Digitalization / Industry 4.0”, “Process and Environmental Sensors”, “Agriculture 4.0” and “Medicine / Life Sciences” and thus addresses a variety of possible applications.
