Saturday, July 10:

From 8:30 a.m.: Tests and breakfast
At the hotel – Please note: Testing will take place before breakfast. Because of the delta version of the virus, we now will test everybody – even vaccinated participants!

9:45 a.m.: Walk to the “Campus Founders”
Bildungscampus 1, 74076 Heilbronn.

10:30 a.m.: Warm Welcome at the Bildungscampus
Prof. Reinhold R. Geilsdörfer of the Schwarz Foundation and Prof. Helmut Krcmar of the Technical University of Munich speak about regional development through educational ecosystems.

11:00 a.m.: Catena-X: More than just a car solution
Alexander Buresch, CIO of BMW,
Stephan Brand, CDO of Bosch Mobility Solutions
and Jürgen Sturm, CIO of ZF

Catena-X was initially called “Automotive Alliance” and had as its goal a cross-company and secure network in the automotive industry. This initially involved:

  • unified data in the automotive industry,
  • more resilience in the automotive supply chain and
  • resilient tracking of CO2 targets at the component level.
    In the meantime, however, Catena-X has grown and is also interesting for companies that do not come from the automotive industry at all. Alexander, Stephan and Jürgen report.

11:45 a.m.: Topic pitches for group discussions
As always at a CIOmove, participants propose their own topics for the group discussions. In addition, the “MIMIs” provide suggestions. “MIMIs” stands for “Masters in Management and Innovation.” All MIMIs already have professional experience and know the Innovator’s Dilemma.

After the short presentations, participants indicate in our “Matchmaker” which topics they would like to discuss in more depth. Our matching tool best matches the small groups according to preferences and availability.
