Welcome to our fully virtual InterActive Conference .

This is the 12th annual edition of the International Research Conference in Dortmund and already the second one to take place completely online.

Virtual reality does not stop us from getting together, exchanging our research, discovering new insights, and having entertaining discussions during our social events.

Master’s students, PhD students, and lecturers have an opportunity to present and discuss their current research work and projects in plenary sessions. The concept offers young researchers a platform where they can train to participate in scientific discourse on diverse topics such as:

  • Cooperation between Academia and Industry
  • Digital Transformation
  • Education – eLearning & Blended Learning
  • Information & Communication Technology
  • Innovation & Entrepreneurship
  • Economics & Business Administration
  • Project Management – Quality & Sustainability.

As in 2020, this year’s Dortmund International Research Conference has received great support from the international project Industrial Twin Bachelor (InduTwin) with the guests from Latin America and China.

“One of the strengths is that people are coming back, so you meet people again and you get to know them, you get familiar with them, so the level of work that you can do afterwards with them or even if you meet them online, it is a much easier conversation and much easier approach.“
