Next to the BIOTEXFUTURE Forum, we hosted the well-received BIOTEXFUTURE Member Day last week. As we have grown from 23 members in 2019 to over 70 members in 2021, we wanted to give our members the chance to get to know each other better and network.
We are always striving to get better and be more innovative, therefore, our members had the pleasure to experience a digital speed dating session. They were randomly assigned to each other and had time to talk to different members over multiple rounds. The benefit of this session was that members could quickly get to know each other using guiding questions.
Furthermore, members were able to discuss and create new ideas in the course of a digital World Café. The topics, challenges and approaches, which were developed in this session, gave the Project Management Office valuable insights for future activities and the identification of new fields of work within BIOTEXFUTURE.
Thomas Köhler (RWTH Aachen University) from the BIOTEXFUTURE Project Management Office once more presented the new call of BIOTEXFUTURE for project proposals.
Many thanks to all participating members. We really appreciate your contributions and look forward to seeing you at our next event, the Idea Management Workshop, which is already open for registration.
