@CITY Intermediate presentation
On November 26, 2020, the project partners presented the results achieved so far in a new, digital event format after just over half of the project duration.
The welcome by project coordinator Dr. Ulrich Kreßel (Mercedes-Benz AG) and the greeting by Matthias Marx from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy were followed by an overview of the overall @CITY initiative and its seven subprojects. Subsequently, the previous work of 40 speakers was presented in detail in three parallel livestreams. To give visitors the opportunity to follow as many of the interesting contributions as possible, the respective sub-project sessions were repeated in the three live streams in the afternoon. In this way, each participant was able to freely design his or her own individual program, switching between the streams as desired.
Personal exchange was also not neglected during the all-day event: during the breaks and after the official end of the event, the approximately 250 participants were able to engage in direct conversation in the virtual "café" thanks to a new type of tool via ad-hoc video chats - in pairs or also in groups.
The project partners would like to thank all participants and guests for this successful day and hope to welcome you again at the latest at the @CITY final presentation in 2022 - then again for a face-to-face meeting on site with driving demos, many interactive presentations and direct, personal exchange.
