Innovation Coffee Break: Innovation Failure Museum & Guided Tours

Participants can select from following Digitalization and Innovation Tours or attend all of them (new tour on each topic will start every 30 Minutes):

  • SMEs 4.0 Competence centre – learn about digitalization of production
  • Volkswagen – Campus Digitalization
  • Museum of Failure*: Innovation and progress require an acceptance of failure. The museum aims to stimulate productive discussion about failure and inspire us to take meaningful risks.
    *not guided, attend on own pace 
11:3012:00TÜV NORD GROUP Digital Manifesto, Dr. Dietmar C. Schlößer
We have talked enough about digitalization, it is time for action! To commit to moving digital transformation in TNG forward we have developed a Digital Manifesto: a document which relies on vision and values of TÜV NORD GROUP but which at the same time operationalises these values to make them actionable. Each and every of our employees can play a part in digital transformation: by committing to principles of the Digital Manifesto.
