Tour plan

aiport signs pointing to international departures and domestic departures

From June 2019 until November 2020, we had planned to be touring around the world (with a focus on France, Japan, and the US) reaching out to international partners interested in creating solutions for the future of work – and then the pandemic hit. Some events took place on-site, others were moved online and yet others had to be rescheduled. Some of you have already had the opportunity to meet our top-class research networks and share ideas, expert knowledge or innovative technologies. If you haven't met us yet: Don’t hesitate to contact your favorite research network or our campaign office. We are looking forward to meeting you!
