Parallelwelten. The NEXT19 main topic.

Every year, NEXT strives to provoke discussion about digital transformation by introducing a broader theme. At NEXT19, topics, speakers and the programme will be framed by “Parallelwelten” (= parallel worlds).

The combined forces of digital and analogue allow for a myriad of different worlds. In German they are called Parallelwelten. NEXT19 investigates them from five different angles: global, local, corporate, scientific, and technological.
