The livestream is available
Those who did not have the opportunity to attend the symposium in person were offered a solution for the loss. All that was needed was an Internet connection, because this year, for the first time in its history, the VDG went digitally live into the world.
In Weilburg, the VDG wanted to try it for the first time. A symposium whose workshop was streamed live on the Internet. You could tune in and watch no matter when and no matter where on YouTube.
Yves Steinmann and Richard Popp from the advisory board were in good spirits that they offer all those who could not participate a large selection of interesting topics, as the streams will also be available afterwards and online on the VDG's YouTube channel.
