Online events are more than copies of their analogue models

With Microsoft 365® and elaborate organisation, the North Westphalia Chamber of Industry and Commerce is conducting the IHK regional competition "Jugend forscht" digitally for the first time

For 35 years, the North Westphalia Chamber of Industry and Commerce has been the organiser of the regional preliminary round of the nationwide "Jugend forscht" competition. Even in the analogue event of earlier years, the organisation of participants and jurors was demanding. This year, the organisers were faced with the challenge of providing 137 young researchers from 23 schools in the Münsterland region, divided into 7 subject groups, with a digital opportunity to take part in the competition. The Münster-based IT management consultancy noventum consulting was commissioned with the technical implementation and, together with Dr. Eckhard Göske, head of the IHK industry department, implemented the multi-day event.

Since 2020, online events are on their way to becoming the new standard

The Covid 19 pandemic forced many organisers of public events to develop concepts for digital implementation last year, including the IHK Nord Westfalen. Together with the IT Forum North Westphalia and the digital hub Münsterland, the IHK organised the IT Strategy Congress for over 500 participants. Consultants from noventum consulting also provided the concept and technical implementation.
