OverviewWith “Asia-Europe Dialogue on Digitalization” the 12th Asia-Pacific Weeks (APW), taking place from May 15th to 28th, 2017, tie in with the formats and results of the APW 2016 and carry them forward. Following the re:publica (May 8th-10th), the festival focussing on the topics of internet and digital society, the Global Innovation Gathering (GIG, May 13th & 14th) and the CUBE Tech Fair (May 10th-12th), the APW 2017 with the guiding theme “Digitalization” form the international climax and conclusion of the startup month of May. The APW provide the ideal platform for exchange of experiences, contacts and the initiation of international cooperations and projects. Berlin and the Asian metropolises profit from this dialogue – from the exchange and cooperations of young founders – and develop joint projects on this basis.
The central events of the 12th APW are concentrated in the first event week from May 15th – 19th, 2017. During the conferences and workshops, experts and players from Europe and Asia will discuss the status quo and trends of digitalization, interdisciplinary possibilities of its use as well as visionary innovations.
