In a time of technological disruption and unimagined global challenges, 1E9 and the FUTURE FORUM by BMW WELT have launched the Reclaim the Future! digital event series – because we can still shape a better world!

At Reclaim the Future! we gather thought leaders from startups, corporations, academia and culture to discuss solutions to global problems and we give you an inside look into the world of technology. Let’s find out how we can and should use innovations like artificial intelligence, biotechnology, robots or extended reality to create a better life for everyone.

Reclaim the Future! is an interactive format, which means you'll always get a chance to ask your questions. As soon as safety regulations allow it again, we are looking forward to welcoming 1E9 members in person on site at the FUTURE FORUM by BMW Welt.
