On November 21st, we hosted a very special community event together with the Munich Innovation Ecosystem at LAB 48: The "AI+ Takeoff: MUC Innovations" event on the topic of artificial intelligence and mobility.
The focus of the network event was an exciting panel discussion with Laura Pichler (T2), Axel Täubert (Google) and Marco Görgmaier (BMW), as well as pitches from innovative AI start-ups. The highlight of the event was the award ceremony, which highlighted the enormous potential of the Munich start-up scene.
Groundbreaking innovations are rarely the result of isolated brilliance but usually emerge following collaboration between clever minds from different professions. As one of Europe’s most innovative regions, the Munich Metropolitan Area is showing how contact can be established – with hubs that facilitate collaboration and break down silos. LabCampus is a perfect example of this.
The urban mobility of the future presents us with complex challenges. Solutions can only be found by pooling knowledge from the worlds of research, industry and politics. The location of Bavaria – and especially LabCampus as a centre of innovation for cross-sector and cross-industry cooperation – offer ideal conditions for necessary collaboration.
LabCampus is officially open. On July 12, the campus was opened in the presence of numerous guests by Minister of State Albert Füracker, Munich Airport CEO Jost Lammers, Munich Airport CFO Nathalie Leroy and Prof. Dr. Thomas F. Hofmann, President of the Technical University of Munich. A very special day that we have worked towards together with many partners. Now the LabCampus concept is a reality and the opening is the starting signal for many future developments.
We are very pleased that the LAB 48 was part of this year's architectural tours. Selected by a renowned jury from the Bavarian Chamber of Architects, LAB 48 was one of the projects presented to those interested in architecture during an exclusive guided tour by the architects from AuerWeber on the last weekend in June. Visitors were given a unique insight into the planning, the construction process and the architectural features of the building.
amplimind, a joint venture between AUDI and Lufthansa Industry Solutions, opens its headquarters at LabCampus.

Almost 5 years after the kick-off for the planning of LabCampus, the time has come to officially open the doors of our LAB 48. With its outstanding architecture, the many gathering places and spaces for collaboration, the LAB 48 reflects the concept of LabCampus. The first building on campus was celebrated with guests and partners who have believed in our vision of LabCampus from the very beginning. With inspiring speeches from Nathalie Leroy, Dr. Marc Wagener and Nils Müller, we started off a wonderful evening where the LAB 48 was the center of attention. We are excited to bring this to life!
As of today, Deutsche Flugsicherung has officially moved into our LAB48 with 150 employees. We are very pleased about the new residents, whose departure into new working worlds and a new form of cross-divisional collaboration begins today.

Thanks to everyone involved for the insightful and inspiring discussion and input!
Today, we're excited to launch our new international campaign that shows LabCampus' answers to the challenges of new working conditions, the controversy of bringing back staff to the office, and the importance of perfect spaces. With the help of our retired protagonists - office chairs, printers and desk lamps - we explain what LabCampus has to offer.
Judith Gerlach, Bavarian Minister of State for Digitalization, visited LabCampus and took a look at LAB 48, which will soon be ready for occupancy. We had the opportunity to talk about our project and the vision behind it. Offering our future residents state-of-the-art digital solutions for their everyday life on the LabCampus is one of our big goals. We also gave Ms. Gerlach a sneak peek into the new campaign, which will soon be featured on our website as well. Thank you for visiting, it was a pleasure to welcome you to LabCampus!
Next stop: Destination Innovation! In Terminal 2 at Munich Airport, you can currently get a taste of LabCampus, the future Destination Innovation, at our promotion booth. So if you want to make a little stopover on your journey, you can do so at our booth until May 13, get information about our projects and even send a postcard - we'll take care of the postage.
Who is behind the camera here and what exactly is happening? You'll have to be patient for a little while longer, because we're preparing something exciting that will soon be available on the website. But we can already reveal this much: Our colleague is standing in LAB 48 in front of the future reception desk with its unmistakable pendant lights. To be continued!
With the arrival of spring, work on the outdoor facilities began. In particular, the PioneerSquare and the Walkway are growing and will soon form a unique outdoor space to stay, relax and work.
Well thought-out signaling at the LabCampus ensures that you can always find your way around. The illuminated lettering has recently been installed at the first quarter on the campus.
The last work on the outdoor facilities begins. Currently, the access road to the first quarter is being completed and a barrier system is being installed in order to restrict the flow of traffic in the future and thus create a high quality of stay as in a pedestrian zone.
The entrance area of LAB 48 has taken on a lot of form in recent weeks. The color orange runs through the building in various shades and can be found in the lobby, for example, in the copper-colored in the copper-colored cladding of the elevator..
