Talent meets Industry
Future prospects for high-school and college students, specialists and start-ups: The international trade fair electronica matches talented people who are enthusiastic about electronics with companies in the industry
Innovation and quality are the strong pillars of electronics. To ensure that they stay that way, it is important to find young talent, retain qualified professionals and support founders. electronica is the perfect place to do so.
High-school and college students, specialists, start-ups, established companies and investors: electronica brings them all together. Our initiative helps young people with talent stay oriented, networks career engineers and professionals with leading employers and generates a great deal of attention for innovative start-ups. In short: We showcase, we network and we support talent!
We showcase talent
A growing number of innovations on the electronics market come from start-ups. electronica Fast Forward, the Start-up Platform powered by Elektor, puts a spotlight on them.
This is where start-ups present their ideas, prototypes, products and services in pitches, demonstrations and personal conversations. Young companies get valuable tips within the scope of their own forum program and with the support of experienced consultants. And the best of the best will receive the electronica Fast Forward Award!
We support talent
On the last day of the fair, i.e. November 11, 2016, electronica has revolved entirely around high-school and college students.
Getting young people interested in high-tech degree programs and careers is one of the greatest challenges facing the economy, politics and schools. That is why we collaborated with the ZVEI to establish Student Day. It specifically addresses students in MINT (mathematics, informatics, natural sciences and technology) schools and is intended to generate interest in careers in the electronics industry.
Student Day addresses aspiring engineers throughout Germany. Together with the VDE and the semica.de careers portal, we have put together a diverse program of events. Presentation of the COSIMA Award, the VDE’s student competition, will be a special highlight.
