An Innovative Platform for Transatlantic Cooperation
The German Canadian Concourse has a track record of bringing together thought leaders and decision-makers on up-to-date innovative topics with a relevance to Canada and Germany.
The GCC is a conference series in the spirit of the recent declaration by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and Canada's National Research Council (NRC) on strengthening German-Canadian cooperation on innovative projects. The GCC is an established format to foster the process of connecting Canadian and German initiatives. With German-Canadian exchange expected to be boosted by newly-signed Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), the GCC aims to expand its platform for showcasing successful examples of German-Canadian cooperation and for launching further collaboration between the two countries.
The German Canadian Concourse is about match-making.
Bringing together German and Canadian thought leaders from topic-matter relevant industries, academic institutions and the public sector during the daylong event creates a
unique opportunity to generate transatlantic linkages between participants.
Provided in part by the Transatlantic Symposium format, which uses a live video-link connecting the German and Canadian Concourse Hubs, the GCC also offers a custom match-making service
built into the conference itself. As part of this service, participant profiles generated during the registration are used to connect matched parties ad-hoc using video booths to bridge
the Atlantic whenever required.
Participants are offered the option to have their personal profiles included into a follow-up on potential transatlantic opportunities.
