On February 13, 2020, the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI will host the Technology Innovation Day 2020. For the event, Fraunhofer HHI particularly invites university students in the greater Berlin region. From 15 short presentations, covering research areas such as optical transmission, optical components, optical sensors, (5G) wireless communication, immersive video technologies (e.g., AR/VR), video compression, and machine learning, participants will get a flavor of the exciting research being conducted at the Institute. In addition, participants will be able to mingle with the speakers and see demonstrators in the exhibition area of their choice.

The number of spaces is limited. Therefore, we kindly ask that you register as soon as possible. Please note that registration is free and students are given priority.

18:00 Special guest Stefan Verra – „a master of bodylanguage“

Stefan Verra

…was born in 1973 in Austria into a family of artists, which should already give us an inkling that he probably developed his eye for detail and his outstanding powers of observation in the cradle. In his talks and stage shows, he entertains and amazes tens of thousands of audience members every year, from Europe to the United States to China. Doctors and scientists alike endorse his holistic method – he always analyses body language signals together, in context, rather than breaking everything down into individual oversimplified elements. He is a lecturer at leading Universities as well as a successful author and respected TV personality.
