Innovation Forum Get Inspired
Ars Electronica Festival

As part of the location partnership between the Upper Austrian Chamber of Commerce and Ars Electronica, the Ars Electronica Festival will open this year for the first time with the international Innovation Forum. Lectures, presentations, workshops and thematic focus tours: “Get Inspired by Ars Electronica” invites businesspeople from Upper Austria to work on various aspects of deviations, the innovation potential of mistakes and constructive error cultures. Developed jointly by the Upper Austrian Chamber of Commerce (Wirtschaftskammer Oberösterreich) and Ars Electronica, the Innovation Forum will take place for the first time this year.

This session belongs to The Ars Electronica Innovation Forum 2018, where it is discussed the interdependencies of culture and economy on the base of this year’s festival topic ERROR - The Art of Imperfection. The two-day event gives some insight on the role of error management and the links of innovation in art, science, and industry from various perspectives. The Thursday (06.09) program with the title 'Innovation Forum Get Inspired' starts with a focus on a more local perspective of economy and innovation in comparison to the famed silicon valley economic scene. The Get Inspired Symposium examines the constructive potential of failures and fallacies and possibilities of error management.  The late afternoon will present Ars Electronica international outreach programs on future innovators as well as a very special edition of FuckUp Night, before heading on to the official opening celebration of the festival.

Thursday, September 6 from 14:00-18:00
