Panel Discussions

In our three Panel Discussion we asked our MQ! attendees to discuss their very own perspective on future-driven mobility topics with us while asking questions to an interdisciplinary body of experts. Within the unique setting of our MQ! arena we arranged three panel discussions parallel to the workspace rounds.

Sustainable Mobility

How realistic is sustainable private transport? How will shared mobility change our everyday lives and the car ownership structure? Which technologies will arise next? Together with our panel host Don Dahlmann we tried to find answers to this questions.

Cast members:

  • Lisa Füting (Audi Business Innovation GmbH)
  • Jens Stoewhase (Founder & editor in chief
  • Yu Zhao (Scott) (Senior Trend Analyst at Audi Innovation Research (AIR) Beijing)
