Virtual COVID-19 Round Tables

The COVID-19 Roundtable deals with the challenges that the pandemic poses for the spatial design of the world of work. It consists of two parts, a short input by the moderators or speakers on selected topics and a workshop in which relevant questions in the respective context are dealt with in greater depth in break-out rooms.

This is a virtual only meeting. You can be physically in the COWORKSTATT but you will need your own equipment (except WLAN) to join the session. This session will be held via ZOOM. All for the roundtable registered participants will receive the links via email or access to the live-event homepage.
