On November 15, 2021, the 1st workshop of the OPTIMISE project took place at the Logistics Living Lab of Leipzig University. Together with the project participants of the Gecko Two GmbH and the CG Elementum AG, the foundations for the identification and analysis, but also for the design of various use cases in the field of Smart Living were laid in this workshop. Methodically, the event was prepared and moderated by the Gecko Two GmbH. As a result of the workshop, a common understanding of the expectations of the project participants towards the project and the considered problem space could be developed. The goal of the OPTIMISE project is to build on this and provide a platform on which complementary smart services can be offered by companies. The next workshop will take place on December 7 at the premises of Gecko Two GmbH.
