Two to three times every year representatives of the member companies come together in two-day meetings, to which often external guests are invited, as well. Once a year this meeting coincides with the annual membership meeting of the platform. Every meeting is hosted by one of the member companies and takes place at their facilities. The conferences are used for discussing the initiative's projects and their progress. The focus, however, is on mutual learning and exchange of experience. The companies present their current activities and solutions and discuss challenges alongside concrete examples. In addition to the Germany-based working meetings, there are regular video conferences with the Japanese member companies.
