As the head of LabCampus, the innovation expert Dr. Marc Wagener wants to foster the cross-industry creation of ideas to make Munich Airport a hotbed for the future. Mr. Wagener was appointed as the managing director of LabCampus GmbH on April 1, 2018. The planned innovation campus at the airport is intended to promote the development of ideas and products across industry boundaries.
Wagener and his team want to create the ideal conditions to make this a reality. That is the starting point for the LabCampus concept, which aims to facilitate the networking of research areas, industries and companies by bringing them close together and helping them share technologies. "I see that kind of cooperation as an opportunity to overcome the challenges ahead. Munich Airport is the ideal environment for this undertaking, and is linked to a metropolis that is renowned for science and research."
As the head of LabCampus GmbH, Marc Wagener wants to develop a future-ready urban infrastructure, attract a suitable mix of partners from the private sector and the R&D community, and stimulate cooperation among them. This will deliver the impetus for the development of new ideas and products. "In the long term, we want to create an innovation site here that is known beyond the boundaries of Munich, Bavaria and Germany – for its productive atmosphere and for the innovations jointly developed here. We want people's eyes to sparkle when they think about LabCampus!"
