OctoberDigital & Data

In Germany, UniCredit HypoVereinsbank launched its new Innovation Hub – a physical space where colleagues can actively shape the future of the Bank. The Hub helps colleagues put innovation into practice, networking with others and gaining new perspectives.

The Innovation Hub features:

  • Collaboration areas: Several spaces suitable for everything from workshops to team events or idea-sharing sessions. These areas include an Idea Lab – an open space with high-top tables and a multi-touch board for hybrid meetings – and an enclosed Think Tank for focus work.

  • An ‘Expo’ area: Here, innovations and impulses from the external world are presented in a vivid way. Employees can expect a mixture of installations, practical applications and interactive elements.

  • Content sessions: All employees are empowered to suggest a topic for ‘Food for Thought’ sessions, during which colleagues can share their knowledge on digital or innovative topics.

  • Meet-ups and lounge area: The Innovation Hub offers numerous opportunities to network with others – regardless of department or hierarchy. Events with an external audience are also planned for this space, for example to engage customers or recruitment candidates.

  • A stage: Inspiring speakers, new perspectives and trending topics – the stage area offers a range of interactive discussions on innovation, transformation and digitisation. Talks take place in a hybrid format so all colleagues can participate.

Our new Innovation Hub represents our commitment to foster innovation and awareness around the immense opportunities of technology, data and AI. It is the next milestone on our path to excel in banking for our clients. Our colleagues will enjoy broader access to best practices from different industries and an environment where ideas for growth can be collectively nurtured.”
