Original post:

The CEIR team invites the members of IndustryConnect to the 11th IndustryConnect workshop at the University of Koblenz-Landau. On April 2nd and 3rd, 2020, participants will experience a varied program. Join representatives of Enterprise Collaboration Systems using companies who have already registered.

In the workshop, current topics and trends in the digital workplace will be discussed and developed under the moderation of CEIR researchers. The focus of this IndustryConnect workshop is primarily on „Enterprise Collaboration – The Next Generation“. Therefore our goals are twofold:

First, to examine where we are now and how we got here. What is today’s digital workplace and how have things changed over the past five years? What are currently topics of interest?

Second, to think about where enterprise collaboration is going. What will we need to tackle next? What will the future digital workplace include and how can we get there?
