Key program points of the Business Forum 2021


The participants from both nations have the opportunity to exchange personal experiences and get to know the other culture better. Thereby, trust and mutual cultural understanding are strengthened and prejudices are reduced. This is the basis for a stable further cooperation.

The exchange is made possible by a joint social part of the event in an informal atmosphere as well as a cultural part in which the German delegation can learn about the culture of the Korean Peninsula.


Co-Creation and Hackathon – Technology meets medicine:
Entrepreneurs, investors and experts from the life sciences sector develop new innovative healthcare solutions based on new innovations and existing technologies. Thus, a common vision is initially created in the workstreams and a concrete need is analyzed. Following framing of the need, solutions are developed jointly in co-creation. Subsequently, the basis for further cooperation is to be created. The workstreams are mentored by experts in design thinking to ensure creativity and structure at the same time. In addition, experts in regulatory issues, data protection, reimbursement, intellectual property, etc. are on hand to provide rapid first aid as needed.

After the Business Forum, the health solutions developed should be implemented by the partnerships.


The congress event is the highlight of the Business Forum. The focus is on building bridges between business and politics, as setting a political course is of particular importance in the highly regulated healthcare market.

In addition, existing offers to companies for cross-border cooperation will be identified and success stories presented.

In addition, the participants of the hackathon will present their results and give an outlook for the future.
