The best of both worlds

Co-working space in Deggendorf: A smart temporary workplace?

24.2.2021 | THD-Pressestelle

The Department of Digitalisation and Innovative Teaching at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) is organising a virtual DigiCamp for all business leaders, HR managers and interested employees on the topic of "Co-Working-Space: Innovative and Flexible Working" on 14 March from 4pm. The event will be held in German. The occasion for the event is the premiere of DIT's co-working space at ITC1 in Deggendorf. It will start operating in March 2021.

The workplace in the company vs. home office is currently a hot topic. "A co-working space has the potential to combine the best of both worlds," says Lisa Geib, Digitalisation Officer at DIT.  Co-working is an integrated and flexible working model in which start-ups, freelancers and other employees rent a flexible workspace in an open-plan office. The focus of co-working spaces is on networking and the exchange of innovative ideas. The advantages are as varied as the concept. For commuters from rural areas, co-working offers working close to home in a modern environment. This work concept can also be particularly interesting for working parents. In times of the pandemic, the needs of employees and, at the same time, of companies have changed rapidly: Home office, virtual meetings plus childcare and home schooling are taking their toll. DIT is leading the way with this topic and is offering five free, project-funded co-working spaces at ITC1 from 1 March.

The virtual DigiCamp shows the possibilities of a co-working space. Several short lectures are planned. The main topics are the opportunities especially for rural areas, co-working experiences from practice and the presentation of the new co-working spaces at ITC1. The programme for the "DigiCamp Co-Working-Space" event can be found on the DIT homepage at www.th-deg.de/en/events.  Participation is free of charge, access data will be sent after registration at coworking@th-deg.de.
