The rad°hub – Time to move

BMW Group in dialogue with international visionaries and opinion leaders to shape future mobility in Smart Cities

Since 2016, the rad°hub has provided a unique platform that ensures a lively exchange of views, creative moments, innovative ideas and inspiring connections. The aim of this dialogue-oriented format is to push boundaries, bring influencers with ideas together and encourage dialogue between visionary thinkers and opinion leaders from all over the world. Interdisciplinary exchange, both within and outside the company, creates a space for discussing the challenges of future mobility and developing a range of possible solutions together.

The rad°dialogue held at BMW Group Classic on 11 October brought together 50 visionaries who are already part of the rad°hub network. During the event, Peter Schwarzenbauer, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for Transformation Electro Mobility handed over patronage of the rad°hub to Dr. Nicolas Peter, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for Finance.

“An active and open dialogue with stakeholders from all facets of society is crucial to solving today´s most complex challenges ,” stressed Nicolas Peter.

As the rad°dialogue got underway, it soon became clear how important a culture of open debate is for a lively and constructive exchange of views. Both members of the Board of Management of BMW AG answered questions in a Q&A session. All of those present were invited to participate in the discussion and had the opportunity to ask any question they could think of. The panel discussion that followed set the theme for the event: the smart city of the future. The city is where technological changes and social challenges have the greatest, most visible, impact – now, more than ever. Megacities are struggling with the various effects of rapid, far-reaching changes on living spaces, mobility, energy production and supply, digital connectivity, the working environment and social interaction. Four international experts from the fields of urban planning, market transformation and urban mobility shared their thoughts and perspectives on the future of urban living.
