About the escape room

Complex web of puzzles and riddles

Which innovative technologies are finding their way into companies and supply chains? How can they enrich our value creation, change our business models and what potentials arise for our processes and collaboration in networks? In the Escape Room, these questions are interwoven in a complex web of puzzles and riddles that not only require the group’s communication skills, but also dedicated teamwork and a goal-oriented approach. With our Escape Room, we bring digital technologies and new concepts to life »hands on« under the guiding principle of managing digital transformation, focusing on an interactive group experience.

The Escape Room is realized in the premises of the Institute Department of Corporate Logistics at Fraunhofer IML in Dortmund.

The Escape Room is aimed at …


… Technology leader

… who want to harness the potential of innovative and digital technologies in the context of logistics and supply chain management.

The Escape Room can be used in many ways – as a team event of companies and departments as well as a component of topic-specific workshops with our domain experts from logistics and supply chain management. The needs-based configuration of the Escape Room through our adaptive modules to company-specific requirements is also part of our portfolio of services. Last but not least, the Escape Room has been created as an excellent, inspiring learning space, which is used as the didactic focal point of our continuing education offering for the management of digital transformation.
