Live Stream: GCC 2017 – Ascent of Autonomous Flying
Live stream starts 24 November 2017, 8:30am EST / 14:30 CET
Virtual Networking Chatrrom
The outreach to conversation partners at a Concourse Hub across the
Atlantic is facilitated through two virtual chatrooms. At both
symposium locations, two video booths are connected to the
chatrooms. During networking lunches and coffee breaks, the GCC
community is invited to experiment with the chatrooms and to engage
in virtual transatlantic networking.
Chatroom – General Networking
This chatroom is open for general transatlantic networking, not necessarily focussed on this year's GCC topic.
Use this chatroom to meet counterparts interested in expanding German-Canadian cooperation.
Chatroom – Ascent of Atonomous Flying
This chatroom is open for an exchange on the GCC 2017 conference topic "Ascent of Autonomous Flying".
Use this chatroom to discuss your experiences in the field of unmanned aerial systems and meet potential partners for collaborations.
The GCC Match-Making Process
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.

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 Canadian Confederation celebrates in 2017 its 150th
anniversary. The GCC 2017 is proud to be part of the official
festivities organized by the Canadian Federal Government and the
Embassy of Germany to Canada on the occasion of this special
