SIT & JUB Insights in Technology Conference 2021 offers two full days of presentations, discussions and exploration on all things tech.

Hear from industry leaders on emerging quantum computing, quantum software and quantum business trends and gain a sneak peek into what the future of Smart Cities will look like thanks to machine intelligence (MI), autonomous technology and more.

This hybrid event is expected to attract over 6,000 online participants from around the world, as well as some 200 on-site guests. Workshops, lectures and discussion panels will focus on four topics: quantum technology; innovative materials; and the application of artificial intelligence in the world of business and finance, and in life and materials sciences. Registration is open for individual talks or for the entire conference.

Leading the debates on these topics are renowned scientists: Mete Atature, Professor of Quantum Physics at the University of Cambridge; Andrey Ustyuzhanin, Professor of Big Data Analysis at HSE University in Moscow; Fabio Pammolli, Professor of Economics and Management at Milan Polytechnic; and Andrea Ferrari, Professor of Nanotechnology and founder of the Cambridge Graphene Center. Internationally renowned scientists and experts from Jacobs University will also take part: Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Andreas Birk, along with Jacobs alumni specialists from the technology and business sector Dr. Cornelia Scheitz, Hashem Al-Ghaili, Ankur Modi, and Kevin Korte.

The third annual conference is a joint effort by SIT and JUB and takes a special look at the interdisciplinarity of transformative science technologies and how they can shape a better and more sustainable world. “Both SIT and JUB are places of interdisciplinary excellence in science, technology, and education. With this global event we highlight Bremen on the world map as a world-class destination for science and education", said Serguei Beloussov, Founder and Chairman of the Board of SIT and founder of Acronis.
"I look forward to meeting so many outstanding experts," added Thomas Auf der Heyde, Provost and Managing Director of Jacobs University. "We will discuss topics on our campus that will shape our future. Thus, the conference will also send out impulses to the Bremen region."
