As title partner of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship, ABB is pushing the boundaries of e-mobility to ensure a more sustainable future. The strong focus on sustainable and ecological development was a decisive factor for ABB in entering the partnership. But the partnership has also taught us a lot about agility and collaboration – values that can benefit industrial players. We will take our learnings from the race-track and share it with participants in this workshop where Markus will serve as the ‘firestarter’ for a panel discussion and thereafter will have break-out sessions where participants will be grouped based on their industries for an in-depth strategy discussion.
