Shape the future together with 300 participants from all over the world.
OSRAM is re-inventing light since 110 years. The company is therefore taking part in the 72-hour TECHFEST Munich from September 9 to 11 – an international technology festival for 300 hackers, makers, developers, nerds, geeks, designers and innovators who will experiment with the latest technologies and materials. With the help of Robots & Machines, Web & Mobile, Data Visions & Lights and the Internet of Things, they will be developing new products and services in different “tracks”, namely Transportation, Illumination, Smart Automation and a Wild Track. OSRAM is providing the challenge in the Illumination track and will be present with lighting solutions for digital apparel, shoes and accessories. The organizer is UnternehmerTUM, the Center for Innovation and Business Creation at the Technical University of Munich in Garching.
Anyone interested in experiencing a little start-up excitement and working in small groups on developing something completely new – either with or without reference to light – is cordially invited to apply. Applications will be accepted until shortly before the start of the event. There are prizes to be won worth a total of 30,000 euros. Art, music video installations, a barbecue and yoga sessions, all add up to a perfect festival atmosphere.
Apply now and take part in TECHFEST!
