Executive Seminar

The executive seminar will address different perspectives on the transformation processes. In more detail, it will be reflecting on the importance of decades defining technological progress (“Digital Transformation”) as well as on the role of regions, cities, and universities in strengthening the environment as nuclei and drivers of transformation (e.g., Berlin as “start‐up capital” or the new Einstein Centre Digital Future (ECDF)). The seminar is organized as a plenary discussion in German.
