Deep Dives

Each of our four channels has an accompanying interactive discussion room—a Deep Dive. Here you can meet many of our speakers for Q&As after their sessions.

You can log in via zoom (without registration) and have the possibility to ask questions to our speakers.

You can also watch the Deep Dive livestream on YouTube and submit questions to speakers via Mentimeter. They will be answered in real-time, too.

How to join the discussion and ask questions:

Afterwards you only have to enter your name and e-mail address, agree to the privacy policy of Zoom and participate. Email address and name will not be saved.

Q&A-Session in Zoom—how to ask questions:

  • If you would like to ask a question, please click on the "Raise Hand" icon, which will appear as a blue icon next to your name. This "Raise Hand" icon can be found in the menu bar at the bottom of the screen. 
  • Our moderator will give you permission to speak and unmute you, so that you can ask your question verbally. Once you have asked a question, we will deactivate the "raise your hand" icon again. If you have another question, please use the icon again.
  • You also have the possibility to ask your question by writing in the chat. Please enter your question in the chat window at the bottom of the screen. Our moderator will then pass it on to the discussion group.
