“Think new – live digital”: the motto of this year’s German Logistics Congress which took place in Berlin from 25 until 27 October encouraged companies to establish digitization in their daily routine. Industrial Data Space is an important condition for achieving this objective, providing sovereign data space for secure data exchange beyond both company and country boundaries. In this context, the Industrial Data Space Association presented Industrial Data Space as the basis for new and future-oriented business models in the Innovation Lounge at the InterContinental Hotel Berlin, where they also made new business contacts and gained even more members for the user association.
The focus of their joint appearance at the fair, together with Effizienzcluster Management GmbH and the Digital in NRW – SME 4.0 Enabling Centre, was clearly on the Digital.Hub Logistics Dortmund: this platform for companies and founders encourages the growth of innovative, digital logistics and production services as future-oriented business ideas. The visitors to the Innovation Lounge could learn about and experience how these are developed, tested and successfully implemented in Digital.Hub Logistics.
Beside its three pillars of success, COMMUNITY, PROCESS and PLACE, that offer innovation teams modern co-working spaces, professional workshops and coaching, as well as highly professional expertise in the fields of logistics and IT, the Digital.Hub Logistics declared the winner of the 1st Digital Logistics Awards and invited visitors to join in their Speed Dating session about the future of Logistics. The professional delegates and experts also had the opportunity to discuss and vote on the “question of the day”, e.g. “Innovations: what has the potential to really prevail?“. There were lots of participants every day and for every question, and lots of fun was also had creating a vivid and effective picture of attitudes using coloured balls.
