We look forward to welcoming you to this major event, held live in a virtual format. CGN is when Fraunhofer IGD and its associated institutes single out the most successful research project, the most promising doctoral theses and the most innovative ideas from the past twelve months.
No fewer than three awards endowed with prizes (cash and non-cash) are to be presented: The Best Thesis Award honors the most successful bachelor's and master's theses of our young scientists. The Best Paper Award goes to scientific publications in three separate categories – Impact on Science, Impact on Business and Impact on Research. And the Best Industrial Project Award pays tribute to the most successful new development in the world of industry.
One of the highlights of every CGN is the keynote address delivered by a guest speaker IGD (“My path after”). This year, former employee Mirko Dobermann (QUIBIQ Rostock GmbH) will be telling the audience about his personal practical experiences after leaving Fraunhofer.
