Educon 2015 Karlsruhe


The beautiful city of Karlsruhe is a science and technology hub, Germany’s online capital, and home to the Federal Court of Justice. It is also very liberal, allowing arts and culture to flourish, creating an atmosphere of openness and futuristic vigour. It was here that Educon 2015 was held, and over 100 educationists from India, Germany, and Israel participated and discussed the theme of “Industry Comes Closer to Academia”. The delegates participated in various sessions as well as the Lab, which was an interactive workshop in the arena of Industry-Academia partnership. The two-day conference ended with a guided tour of ZKM, the Center for Art and Media. ZKM is a platform for cross-border experiments between arts and science, where artists and scientists from various disciplines come together to create magic through implementation of unusual methods, novel and innovative works, and pioneering ideas.
