Young people in dialogue with research, technology and innovation

PlanSinn designed fti remixed to bring young people into contact with research, technology and innovation in their usual communication milieus (everyday life, social media) and give them an insight into various fields of research through contact with real-life researchers.   

"What kind of researcher are you?" To date, some 80 researchers and well over 1000 young people have answered this question by completing our "Check your tech" self-assessment test. This is followed up by real-life encounters with researchers and visits to research institutions. Here, the "fti speed-dating" format enables us to involve 30-40 young people in conversation with 5-7 researchers within a short space of time. The spectrum of topics covered ranges from artificial intelligence and biomedical technologies via nuclear physics and astronomy through to transport telematics, biofuels, e-health and acoustics.
