TRANSFER.FESTIVAL 2023 inspires over 100 participants with a diverse program

New headliner workshops, lab tours, live music and food trucks: The 3rd edition of the TRANSFER.FESTIVALS attracted over 100 visitors to the Fraunhofer IML in Dortmund. This year, the event took place for the first time in cooperation with the IFOY Award, which was presented in the evening at the Dortmunder U.

Diverse line-up according to the motto “No lectures – just workshops”

At the TRANSFER.FESTIVAL, we completely forgo lectures; instead, it’s all about experiencing and doing. This year, 14 workshops comprised our unique offering, with a very broad range of topics. Artificial intelligence, blockchain, agile working and open source in logistics were among the headliners this year.

On we go

At 10 a.m. sharp, the morning started with a pitch: all workshop leaders had a few seconds to present their sessions – then the participants could choose two workshops. In both rounds, the participants had enough time to discuss, design, plan, puzzle and develop digital and innovative ideas together. Exciting insights were also provided by the Lab Tour, which took place after the lunch break and offered exclusive glimpses behind the scenes at Fraunhofer IML.

Live music and food trucks enabled relaxed networking

In addition to all the brain food at TRANSFER.FESTIVAL, there was, of course, no shortage of culinary and musical fare! At noon, a relaxed get-together with food trucks and live music awaited the participants.
