    Zukunftsbrücke: Chinese-German Young Professional Campus

    The Future Has Arrived – How Do We Prepare for the AI Era?

    Americans and Chinese are struggling for predominance in the field of artificial intelligence. What opportunities are left for Europe and Germany? The Zukunftsbrücke 2018 focuses on this century’s key technology from a German-Chinese perspective. In Hangzhou, the stronghold of the Chinese AI industry, 30 young German and Chinese leaders will visit companies such as Alibaba and NetEase and extensively discuss the opportunities and consequences of artificial intelligence among each other and with experts. Besides political and economic aspects, social issues will also be addressed.

    The Zukunftsbrücke 2018 takes place on October 14–20, 2018, in Hangzhou and Shanghai. It is a project of Stiftung Mercator and the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt in cooperation with the All-China Youth Federation.

    The Zukunftsbrücke – Chinese-German Young Professional Campus aims to build an active, cross-sector network of young leaders from China and Germany. This personal and professional network is to make a key contribution to a future-oriented and sustainable partnership between the two countries.
