Join us next year 2017, for an exchange between specialists from the Asia-Pacific region and their European colleagues on vital topics from economics and politics, research and science, culture and society, and also economic entanglement and transfer of knowledge. Since 1997 the Asia-Pacific Weeks Berlin (APW) have offered a unique European platform for an interdisciplinary, European-Asian dialogue with players from various fields, enabling debates on globally relevant subjects like smart cities, industry 4.0, digitalization, start-ups and their innovations.
