As every year, a special highlight of IMAGINE22 is the Idea Marathon.
This year, like the entire conference, the Idea Marathon is dedicated to "Twin Transformation".
Ideas that combine digital technologies with topics of economic, ecological and social sustainability are in demand.
These can be existing or future project ideas.  

Among others (but not exclusively), the following topics are possible:
_AI for Green
_Data for Sustainability
_Energy Efficiency
_Resource conservation
_People at the center

Anyone with an idea can submit it.

The winners will be chosen by the audience in a live voting on site.

The top 7 will also have the opportunity to participate in a professional speaker coaching session prior to the event.
