This DLD Summer session describes the Innovation Roadshow which will take DLD and UnternehmerTUM to innovation hubs innovation hubs in each EU member state. We believe that Europe has the potential to successfully execute and implement the European Green Deal and set a global example with interdisciplinary initiatives like the New European Bauhaus.
The goal is to connect local ecosystems with the international DLD and UnternehmerTUM communities to facilitate collaboration across ecosystems and knowledge transfer, supporting the next generation of “Creators of the Future”. “An innovative roadshow is a great format to collect ideas from all over Europe”, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said. “We will follow your journey! And we’re looking forward to receiving your input to the project.”
