QBN (Online) Meetings

The exclusive and non-public QBN (Online) Meetings are not ordinary webinars or workshops but a virtual replacement of QBN’s working group meetings. They are unique in terms of participants and topics and offer valuable market insights as well as networking and business opportunities.

The QBN meetings provide a trust-based environment for the discussion of relevant R&D trends and the initiation of collaborations. There are neither recordings nor a live stream and each participant of the limited and hand-picked audience participates equally with video and audio. To this end, a special focus is placed on what each participant can do for the others and what the others can do for the individual. In the 1:1 meetings the participants can get to know each other personally and generate first ideas for joint projects. The workshops and roundtable discussions offer space for your visions and new inspiration.


All participants are asked to attend the entire meeting.
