productronica 2019 | Accelerating Talents


To optimize communication between employers and young professionals, productronica 2019 was focusing on the topic “Accelerating Talents” for the first time. Students, graduates, young professionals, and startups were able to gain some insights into electronics production processes and establish professional contacts.

Hackathon@productronica—Your real-time challenge


The Hackathon will celebrate its premiere at this year’s productronica. At a hackathon, a group of hackers completes a 48-hour “marathon” working on concrete problems (challenges). The cross-disciplinary teams develop approaches that provide food for thought and innovative solutions.

The “hackers” in our case are you, of course—the young professionals or students from the fields of electrical engineering, automation, mechanical engineering and industrial engineering.

The challenges will be submitted by the exhibitors. They are therefore real and offer you a good opportunity to get to know potential employers.

Use the formats and get a whole lot closer to your dream job.
