Make it your challenge!

The ACHEMA Innovation Challenge is a digital innovation competition that DECHEMA organizes for the first time in the run-up to ACHEMA and that will culminate at ACHEMA Pulse 2021.

We are inviting you to become  an active part of the ACHEMA Innovation Challenge as a sponsor or by submitting a question to the challenge.

The ACHEMA Innovation Challenge consists of three topical pathways that are all related to digitalisation in the process industry and focussed on specific, industry-relevant questions. Details on the concept and the already defined topics are given on the website.

The third topic could bear your name!

Design it together with us: Do you have a specific question and would like to know what solutions innovative students or young professionals come up with? Formulate your problem, if you like together with stakeholders from the DECHEMA network or your customers and interested parties. Via our team of experts and network DECHEMA e.V. can provide access or act as a neutral platform. Registration to your challenge can be opened any time; the concrete topic will be worked on from March by the teams. This process will be accompanied by mentors and workshops. The highlight will be the pitch session and award ceremony at ACHEMA Pulse on 15-16 June 2021.
