Panel Discussion

Select date to see events.

Aside of the annual general meeting to kick off on 6 October, the two days will feature new use cases, a lot of additive inspirations and reports from the working groups of both divisions MGA Medical and MGA Mobility.

Moreover, the opening of the IAM HUB Berlin and a brand-new coworking environment at the Marienpark Berlin will be on the agenda.

Confirmed speakers will be announced shortly.


In case the conference cannot be executed as a live-event, we will hold a half-day virtual conference on 6 October 2020. There, highlight updates from the network and exciting presentations will be streamed.
A final assessment of the situation will be conducted approx. 6 weeks prior to the event. All parties will be informed accordingly thereafter.
