Closed application process: Thanks for your submissions!


Application description

Choose a concise title for your idea, name your team members, and summarize your idea along the four questions below. In other words, in order to apply, you provide us with an executive summary (i. e. a short concept paper - two pages) of your idea. If your application passes the first stage, you will present your idea in front of our selection committee.

At DIHP‘s “Digital Pitch 2021” you have a maximum of five minutes to convince the selection panel of your idea. The selected projects will receive significant research support as well as guidance in transforming the ideas into a sustainable business model (for SMEs) or a sustainable company.  


For your application, please choose a concise title and answer the following questions:

  • Idea: Which problems does your product or your service idea address? To what extent is it digitally supported?
  • Team: Who are your team members? Which experiences and competencies do they contribute?
  • Market: Who are the potential customers? How could revenues be generated?
  • Status: Where are you now? Where do you need support?

Terms and conditions

Based on the summary, your submissions will be selected and invited to the digital pitch event. The decision is the DIHP’s responsibility. Projects without a technology component cannot be admitted. Any recourse to courts of law is excluded.
