Almost 1000 people visited the Future Convention, held on 28 November 2016 at the Museum für Kommunikation, the Deutsches Architekturmuseum and the Deutsches Filmmuseum in Frankfurt. Attendees were offered ideas and concepts for the future of the economy and society and discussed the challenges and opportunities in our digitalized world. Covering 69 technical fields, student teams from 68 universities from Germany, other European countries, and Canada showcased their 100 projects at the Future Award. The Future Convention saw the presentation of the eleventh Future Award of the Future Network. Of 100 finalists, 15 were awarded prize money and given the opportunity to participate in three different coaching sessions at the Future Academy. The Future Awards were presented by the Future Network sponsors and by long-standing partners BKK-VBU (health category) and Business Wire (media category).
Renowned businesses and respected leaders gave examples of best practice at numerous workshops, panel discussions, Q&A sessions, as well as at the very first Future Network Business Conference.

IntegenX Applauds the Passage of the Rapid DNA Act of 201721.8.2017 12:00 | Pressemelding
IntegenX Inc., the global market leader for Rapid DNA human identification, applauds the signing into law of S.139 and HR.510, The Rapid DNA Act of 2017. The legislation will allow law enforcement agencies, under standards and guidelines established by the FBI, to perform real-time DNA testing at time of arrest, within booking stations. Similar to how fingerprint analysis has evolved from a paper and ink practice to a point-of-action technology, DNA testing has now become possible in 90 minutes within a booking station, while a suspect is still in custody. With processing times reduced from weeks to less than two hours, the potential to identify or exonerate a suspect quickly will make a meaningful impact on law enforcement. IntegenX thanks U.S. Senate sponsor Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and lead co-sponsor Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) as well as House sponsor Congressman
