The kick-off event took place in the auditorium of the University of Mannheim with around 30 participants and staff from the Foundation and MCDS. Constructive exchange began immediately during the event and initial questions were formulated and enthusiastically discussed in three working groups on the previously agreed topics of digital business models, ecological sustainability and data literacy. In the subsequent get-together, the discussions that had been initiated could be deepened.
The kick-off event was a complete success. The Foundation and the MDCS researchers are looking forward to continuing the format over a period of three years. The next face-to-face meeting of all contributors is planned for autumn 2022. If you are still interested in participating, the University of Mannheim Foundation would be happy to hear from you.
