LabCampus, the new interdisciplinary innovation center at Munich Airport, has gained another prominent tenant. Deutsche Flugsicherung (DFS) has rented around 2,700 m² of space in LAB 48. As the first property on LabCampus, which will be ready for its new tenants from April of next year, the four-story office building lays the foundation for innovation and interdisciplinary cooperation. Here, DFS will find the perfect conditions for future-oriented office space. 

"After Argo AI – one of the world’s leading technology firms in the field of autonomous driving – DFS is the second renowned mobility company that will take up residence at LabCampus. We are delighted with DFS’s decision to make use of the opportunities created here. This sends an important signal to other potential users of LabCampus looking at mobility and transport or other significant issues for the future," explained Jost Lammers, Chief Executive Officer of Flughafen München GmbH. 

Dr. Marc Wagener, Managing Director of LabCampus GmbH, also sees DFS, with its specific technological expertise, as an excellent fit with the spirit and character of LabCampus: "Air traffic control is doubtlessly a most critical task with the highest of safety requirements and zero tolerance for error. We are certain that DFS will provide crucial impetus in the emerging innovation ecosystem and also benefit from this itself."

Around 150 of Deutsche Flugsicherung’s administrative employees, who currently work at DFS’s existing premises at Munich Airport, are to move to LAB 48. "DFS is constantly introducing innovations in its core business – now, we also want to offer innovative solutions for our employees’ offices that meet the transformed needs," says Wolfgang Bretl, Director Operations Munich. "In the best sense, LabCampus is a test environment, where we can try things out and put them into practice. The lessons learned at LAB 48 are also to be applied to existing workspaces and planned new buildings," adds Heiko Teper, Head of Systems and Infrastructure Services Region South.

DFS wishes to link the journey into new working worlds with concrete questions and, for example, examine how interdisciplinary communication with cross-departmental and -company mixed teams can be improved in changing projects. "The answers that DFS finds at LAB 48 will echo throughout the company. They could help to redefine the cooperation of the future and to shape it accordingly as a team," says Oliver Vostri, Head of HR Management South.
