Chilean Participants of the InnovationTour

Have a look at the video of the InnovationTour and meet the visitors who were travelling in Germany from 29th May to 2nd June 2017. Following the successful attendence of 10 German tandems at the InnovationPlatform end March 2017 in Santiago de Chile, a group of outstanding Chilean scientists, entrepreneurs and innovators in the local mining sector visited Germany during the InnovationTour. The tour led the group through an interesting 5-day-program starting in Munich and ending in Berlin. During these days, the Chilean visitors met different Fraunhofer Institutes, universities, research institutes as well as SME companies who were also active in the InnovationPlatform in Santiago de Chile.
