The Polyvorträge are a series of presentations taking place before and during Polymesse. Around 30 companies get the opportunity to present topics concerning a product or service of theirs. These presentations are a chance to get an insight to typical projects and the working atmosphere of the companies as well as possibilities to enter the company (be it employment, internship or master thesis).

No registration is required for the Polyvorträge.

And many more. Presentation in English.
