Siemens aims to empower educators, students, and startups as they usher in the future of innovation and continue to bridge the gap between industry and academia. Realize LIVE is one such opportunity for dialogue among the global Siemens community, offering a space for idea-sharing, collaboration, and career-advancing conversations. The Siemens Empowers Education and Startups team (SEES) is eager to provide multiple resources at this year’s Realize LIVE!

Realize LIVE 2023

This year’s Realize LIVE events will be held in June and July in the United States, Germany and Japan. Realize LIVE welcomes those who are thinkers, doers and change-makers, from educators and students to technical users to process leaders to industry partners. The event offers in-depth technical training, product previews, and the first look at new solutions. Attendees also gain access to Siemens experts, insights on the future of industry, and fresh perspectives and best practices, delivered straight from Siemens customers.

Realize LIVE is a single place for partners, Siemens experts and customers to all come together and really talk about a similar interest in digital transformation and where we are trying to take our companies.
