#NUEdialog CEO-Summit

About the #NUEdialog


The #NUEdialog stands for the Nuremberg Dialogue Business and Science. Organized by the Department of Economics and Social Sciences (WiSo Nuremberg), the congress has been a platform for successful cooperation between companies and science since 2019. The #NUEdialog and the associated CEO Dialog pursue a central goal: to promote the exchange of ideas and impulses on practical and socially relevant issues as well as possible perspectives for successful cooperation.


The WI and the #NUEdialog CEO Summit offer a platform to discuss “Grand Challenges” and “Business Informatics” from two different perspectives. Find out from high-ranking speakers what the current challenges and research topics in business informatics are and how business informatics is leading to sustainable development. Discuss novel approaches and exciting perspectives at the panels and look forward to exchanging ideas with top-class representatives from research and practice.
