        Digital collaboration

        Cross-company working

        Current developments in the world show that, at the latest with the pandemic, digital collaboration is not only possible among startups and innovators. Increasingly, more and more companies are moving to test new collaboration tools and to establish them permanently as a fixed component of daily work. Cross-company working has also changed significantly as a result. homePORT wants to take advantage of this opportunity and, as a networker, ensure that collaboration between network partners is made possible. To achieve this, we use the newest tools and enjoy experiencing new things with each other.

        At the homePORT test areas in the port, we want to bring the self-driving, autonomous eFloater to life and put it through every test. From our point of view, this test space for transformative co-design is urgently needed to develop solution approaches with social acceptance for the mobility of tomorrow.
