Digitalization as a lever for sustainability is an in-person event that targets to bring together individuals interested in how digital tools can support sustainability. Our goal is to find concrete solutions that can be implemented now and help others to develop a more intelligent way of living and working without reducing life and work quality.

This event brings together researchers and students with various backgrounds to discuss and develop concrete actions to integrate digital solutions into a sustainable lifestyle. Besides interesting keynotes, small workgroups address various topics in two sessions on Saturday.
