We will demonstrate to us as well as others the multitude of possibilities currently on offer at Vilstal. And together, we will learn about the huge potential inherent in Vilstal in a “digital” age. This is the idea of “Silicon Vilstal”, a private initiative of Geisenhausen resident Helmut Ramsauer. A wide range of thought-provoking events featuring international experts, initiatives from all over Germany and exciting regional stakeholders.
This festival weekend will open on Friday with an evening event at the Augustinerstadl of the Centre for Traditional Costume Holzhausen. International trend scout Raphael Gielgen of Vitra will be holding a lecture on the early stages of the future of new work environments. With his talk, internationally renowned architect Peter Haimerl will create a link between his activities in his native region of Bayerwald and innovative trends in the world of architecture. Dr. Gregor Jawecki, head of Hyve Innovation Research, will speak about Open Innovation as a new approach to innovation.Annemarie and Martin Zehetbauer will tell the story of how the online house for children, Blaubär, came into being as a result of an idea born on New Year’s Eve.
During the weekend, interactive workshops on a wide range of topics including 3D printing, design thinking, a “car campus”, “patent breakfast” and bus tours to exciting sites of innovation around Vilsbiburg and Geisenhausen will be offered for both children and adults.
For most events offered as part of Silicon Vilstal, participants are asked to register.
With their active participation, Ostbayerisches Kulturforum, Landkreis Landshut, the communes of Vilsbiburg and Geisenhausen as well as many national and local companies are generous supporters of Silicon Vilstal.
