Session 4N | Roundtable Discussion
Tuesday, May 21, 2019 | Room Legends A | Session Starts at 3:30 pm
A scientific brainstorming and networking event is organized on the basis of discussion round tables
(DRT) by the rolling element bearing technical committee together with other technical committees. This
event aims to encourage open discussions between experts of different disciplines on various topics of
interest. The format of the DRTs is very fruitful to facilitate a creative atmosphere on complex topics
character and to find technical impulses by brainstorming. The topics are proposed by the table hosts
themselves and are based on current interests. A typical property of DRTs is the writable table cloth to
inspire the discussion as well keep notes for subsequent discussions. The benefit of DRTs goes beyond
the technical impulses. During the DRT the hosts will guide the discussion only and not give a lecture.
Active participation, including experience sharing of each participant, is one of the main features of this
event providing an unique opportunity to connect and learn.
