OUR FIVE LABS AS WORKING VESSELS
We see ourselves as an innovation ecosystem and are convinced that better solutions emerge faster through joint innovation. With our Labs, we cover the ecologically, technologically, economically, digitally and socially relevant aspects in the context of the built environment.
Our labs serve as working vessels in which we bring different stakeholders together thematically. Regular lab sessions provide for exchange and set impulses with the aim of launching joint projects. The Lab teams provide methodical support in the early phase and accelerate activities in the innovation process.
