Four exciting topics at the daily digital lunch talk

"Let's shape the future together - Mittweida is the place to be!" - This is the motto of the new innovation center that is being built at Bahnhofstraße 32 in Mittweida. Mittweida innovativ Gesellschaft für Wissenstransfer mbH and Volksbank Mittweida eG are working together on the project.

As the on-site opening will be somewhat smaller than planned due to COVID-19, further highlights have been planned for calendar week 40. From September 29 to October 2, from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., you can take part in a digital lunch talk. Detailed information and how to register can be found on the website at

The first 100 registrations will receive a Werkbank32 mug as a gift, and a Learning Journey to Estonia (worth 1,750 euros) will be raffled off among all participants who attend all 4 days of the Lunch Talk. Opening week with the Werkbank32 Lunch Talks, each from 11:45 to 13:00:

From 2021, the innovation center and its rooms can be used for workshops or events. Whether start-ups, established companies or family businesses - the Werkbank32 offers space and helps on the path to digitalization.

Werkbank32 also offers innovative workspaces and coworking spaces for start-ups, freelancers and students. The first to move in was the Blockchain Competence Center at Mittweida University of Applied Sciences. The first start-ups will also be starting work here soon. Mittweida innovativ, a subsidiary of the initiator Volksbank Mittweida eG, has also already moved into the premises and will manage the innovation center from there.
