buzzword to learning to collaboration

Videos of the conference
The change in business and industry is picking up momentum, with the focus still very much on technologies. But most Digital Transformation is about collaboration, we’re all finding out. This is why our second conference will explore the impact of potential of technologies on the one hand. On the other, we will be discussing the impact on company organizations, learning and university degrees.

This is also where the Erasmus Plus Strategic Partnership project that our three universities just won will kick in. To make your conference contributions more seizable, we shall be exchanging ideas at an Open Space session in the afternoon. We invite you and your industry and academic colleagues to exchange with us on the impact and possible scenarios of Digitization in your environments.

We are looking forward to an interesting day and to welcoming you in Bielefeld.
