Information about the Innovation Conference

Due to the increasing interconnectedness of all areas of life through information and communication technologies, the importance of innovative information technologies is playing an increasingly important role in all areas of social action. The timely integration and use of innovative developments is also crucial for the Bundeswehr's successful implementation of its own institutional objectives. The methods used so far to identify, assess and introduce IT innovations in the Bundeswehr will in future increasingly take account of the special features of information technologies, which In contrast to "classic armaments", are characterized by significantly shorter innovation cycles and driven substantially by new stakeholders outside the traditional (armaments) industry, such as the digital economy, start-ups or new scientific disciplines.

With the help of the innovation conference Cyber and Information Technology, the Bundeswehr wants to embark on a holistic path for the innovation dialogue cyber / IT as well as for the needs-oriented identification and introduction of IT innovations in the business area of the Federal Ministry of Defense.
