What a fantastic time at the very first Oerlikon Digital Hub Hackathon! Creators, innovators, makers, PIONEERS and partners gathered in the Digital Hub in Munich, between Nov 8-10, to design digital tools for the industrial world. During 24 hours, the #digitalpiOEneers worked on finding innovative concepts and new ways of working, to address real life issues from our own Oerlikon business units.
We kicked-off the event on Friday evening, with two special guests that sparked inspiration: Prof. Dr. Falk Ubernickel and Dr. Roberto Balmer. Our Solutions Partners (PTC, Zeiss, Zyfra, doubleSlash) also took the stage, each giving a quick introduction into their company and how they are driving digital transformation. In this way, our participants could already get familiar with them and have a more productive collaboration during the weekend.
On Saturday morning, Oliver Wachsmut, the Global Head of Oerlikon Digital Hub, introduced the participants into the Oerlikon and the Digital Hub World. His session was followed by the Challenge masters describing the challenges, rules of the game and available items, as well as the partners present on site, talking about the support they provide to participants, during the weekend.
