After a very successful but digital first symposium one and a half years ago, the second joint symposium of the Berlin Open Lab and the Hybrid Platform is now taking place. In the morning, researchers from the Charlottenburg Campus will present their findings, followed by Q&As giving the opportunity to deepen topics and ask questions. After the lunch break, tours of the BOL using prototypes provide further immersion into the research. All breaks provide time for informal exchange.
We look forward to seeing you there!
