"Joint Labs - Using synergies for joint innovations" - This was the motto of the first Joint Lab workshop on Monday, 10 Dec 2018 at Fraunhofer-Konferenzzentrum in Potsdam Golm. 

The aim was to enter into a dialogue with actors from the knowledge and technology transfer sector and to exchange experiences on the Joint Lab cooperation format. The expectations of the team from the Technologiecampus Golm were exceeded!

We would like to thank all participants for the stimulating input and discussions and all contributors for the successfull event. 

Here you can find the review of the successful workshop. The review is available only in German.
