Review | MTH Pots­dam goes #rp22 and OWF

After a two-year pan­de­mic break, MTH Pots­dam was at two major events last week: re:publica in Ber­lin and the East Ger­man Busi­ness Forum (OWF) in Bad Saarow.

re:publica 2022

The re:publica was back LIVE at Are­na Ber­lin and Fest­saal Kreuz­berg from June 8–10 for the first time sin­ce 2019. The MTH Pots­dam was the­re on all three days of the fes­ti­val. Among others, the Pots­dam-based com­pa­ny Halos­ta­ge exhi­bi­ted with a mobi­le LED wall.

In addi­ti­on to many pro­gram high­lights, such as con­tri­bu­ti­ons from Ger­man Chan­cellor Olaf Scholz, cli­ma­te acti­vist Lui­sa Neu­bau­er or trans­for­ma­ti­on rese­ar­cher Maja Göpel, we saw gre­at panels with spea­kers from the MTH Pots­dam eco­sys­tem. Among others, Erik Wolff (CEO Halos­ta­ge) was in con­ver­sa­ti­on with Fran­zis­ka Koch,Wolf Bos­se and Sche­rin Raja­ku­ma­ran about “How does Vir­tu­al Pro­duc­tiond chan­ge the media loca­ti­on Berlin/​Brandenburg?”.

From cli­ma­te chan­ge, dee­pfakes, chat­ting with wha­les to con­fet­ti rain and Toco­tro­nic con­cert – we take away exci­ting impres­si­ons and food for thought from re:publica 2022!

The­re will also be more about the re:publica and Media­Tech con­tent in our upco­m­ing blog post in July 2022. Our Media­Tech blog is avail­ab­le here.

OWF 2022

From June 12–14, this year’s East Ger­man Busi­ness Forum will once again take place LIVE in Bad Saa­row. For the first time, the Digi­tal Hub Initia­ti­ve was also pre­sent with an event on site on Sunday, June 12, 2022 befo­re the offi­cial ope­ning. In addi­ti­on to pre­sen­ta­ti­ons from the Smart Sys­tems Hub Dres­den and IoT and Fin­tech Hub Ber­lin, the­re was also a pre­sen­ta­ti­on by Jen­ny Beut­na­gel from Inter­la­ke. Among other things, she pre­sen­ted the “Meta­ver­se Ide­a­ti­on Work­shop” in coope­ra­ti­on bet­ween Media­Tech Hub Pots­dam, Volu­cap and Interlake.

In addi­ti­on, Andrea Wick­le­der (CEO MTH Pots­dam) and Sven Blie­dung (CEO Volu­cap) were part of a panel on “How can inno­va­tions be harnes­sed across indus­tries?” and the start­up ZAU­BAR was on site with exhibits.
