educon 2021: The education summit for makers and leaders

The educon 2021 (on November 4th and 5th, 2021) is the meeting platform for makers and leaders in German education. In a participatory and collaborative manner, we set impulses for the future of education and drive educational innovations forward. In workshops, keynotes, panel talks and other creative formats, players of our educational landscape get a chance to speak.

At the educon 2021 we create sustainable networking through digital tools of collaboration as well as spaces to get together. The main program of the educon takes place online. Highlights can be seen in the livestream on our event platform, while interactive workshops take place in virtual rooms. In addition, we offer particular face-to-face program items in several decentralized locations all over Germany with a focus on the Metropolitan Region Rhine-Neckar.

Here you can find the overview of the tickets.

Register today for our free livestream or our attractive workshops (virtual or hybrid).

The educon 2021 Hackathon follows the goal of forwarding education-demanding tasks and inspiring minds and a lot of fun awaits you. We want to know what kind of challenges you see for the future of education. Which problems are you confronted with in your environment? Which are the questions you seek answers to?

The educon looks at education from a long-term perspective and most of all from a sustainable point of view.

„What happens at educon stays at educon“ is the opposite of what we want – we want action! This is why we want to reward the Hackathon’s best ideas with a seed capital to ensure it does not stay just an idea but becomes reality. The seed capital can be rewarded to new projects, concepts, start-ups but also to new collaborations of already existing initiatives. National and international collaborations are not only welcomed but encouraged.

Metropolitan Region Rhine-Neckar – An alliance of strong partners

“Together we are stronger” is both the motto of the alliance for the Rhine-Neckar region and its recipe for success. Verband Rhein-Neckar Region, Verein Zukunft Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar and Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar GmbH work together to ensure coordinated regional development.

Our common goal: to establish an international reputation for the Rhine-Neckar region as one of the most attractive and competitive locations in Europe by 2025. The three organisations seek out ways to combine existing forces and expertise in the region at every opportunity.

The educon 2021 is an event of the Metropolitan Region Rhine-Neckar.
