"Recognising tomorrow's potential for success and how AI can support this" - this was the motto of this year's Symposium for Foresight and Technology Planning (SVT), co-organised by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Roman Dumitrescu, head of the "Advanced Systems Engineering" department at the Heinz Nixdorf Institute of the University of Paderborn. Together with Prof. Dr. Katharina Hölzle (Fraunhofer Innovation Research Group) and acatech (German Academy of Science and Engineering), Dumitresco facilitated the exchange of ideas among over 70 participants.

On 14 and 15 September, numerous decision-makers from the fields of business and science came together at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities to present the latest research results and practical application examples. Diverse perspectives on understanding the interaction between humans and machines led to new impulses and insights into the future topic of artificial intelligence (AI). A special highlight of the event was the panel discussion on the topic of "Generative AI & Foresight".

The Heinz Nixdorf Institute was also represented with the presentation "Entry into the Circular Economy: Integrative Planning of Products and Business Models" by Michel Scholtysik (Advanced Systems Engineering Division) and Christoph Pierenkemper (CP contech electronic GmbH). The contribution presented current findings from the field of the circular economy that were gained in the "it's" OWL research project "ZirkuPro".

The next symposium will take place on 26 and 27 September 2024, also in Berlin.
