With the creation of LabCampus, Munich Airport is taking another important step in the direction of the future. And this one’s a huge stride. On a site the size of 70 soccer fields—500,000m² to be precise—"destination innovation” is taking shape. Here, over the next few years, fresh, smart ways of collaborating between businesses and across industries will start to emerge.
For everyone that converges here, from innovators and experts, to SMEs and global players, entrepreneurs, startups and investors, LabCampus is creating the perfect connected environment. This will give rise to totally new ways of doing things, fostering new opportunities and harnessing tomorrow’s potential. There’s no denying it’s a major project. But its creation hasn’t come out of nowhere. Instead it’s a direct response to huge demand - not just for increased operational speed in processes and standards - but for totally new business models. These are the true challenges facing any company of any size.
To stay in the game, it is no longer enough to be reactive where innovation is concerned. Those that secure their places in the markets of tomorrow are proactive. But this comes with a whole new set of challenges. That’s because only companies that truly embrace an interdisciplinary work culture and encourage cross-collaboration outside of their own four walls are able to create fresh momentum, rethink traditional ideas and actively shape the future.
This is exactly what LabCampus at Munich Airport offers. All under one roof, benefiting from the most modern of environments, companies and experts can jointly develop innovative solutions, products and services and present them directly to an audience on their doorstep: an international transport hub. Excellent international connections, access to 150,000 visitors per day and spacious test areas make LabCampus a first-class destination for innovation and a lively urban space to top it off.
LabCampus doesn’t just actively create the right blend of industries and companies. Once on campus, this blend has access to a large support network around it. That’s why - right from the start - LabCampus has relied on cooperation with leading innovation partners, renowned institutions and research centers. These experts know, better than any, how to coach companies around establishing innovation processes, from ideation through to execution and marketing.
