Today, one year ago the Tomorrow Unlocked project went online. We were more than excited to create this new hub for technology culture and building a community of scientists, tech experts, enthusiasts, and artists. Now looking back at a year, which couldn't have gone by quicker, we still have to grasp the achievements we and our community managed to accomplish. By working with incredible people and creating diverse content we published more than 252 content pieces on the Tomorrow Unlocked website and generated more than 500.000 hours watch time on our Youtube Channel.
