Digitalisation is the greatest transformational force of society of today. The opportunities that open up are extensive and at the same time, digitalisation brings many new challenges. A sustainable digitalisation requires capable handling of issues relating to privacy, security, energy consumption, as well as issues related to the transition that takes place when jobs disappear due to automation.

Come together
To meet the challenges and create a sustainable future we require knowledge and close collaboration between the various actors in society. Our initiative seminar Digitalisation – opportunities and challenges, bring together experts from research, industry and the public sector to discuss the digitalisation progress and its potential consequences. Prominent researchers, experts and managers from industry and society will present and discuss perspectives on digitalisation, future, threats and promises for the society of today and tomorrow. A broad audience from academia, industry and the public sector are invited to the seminar.

The two day seminar will be organised in four themes offering additional perspectives on digitalisation:
  •     Connected world
  •     Automated society
  •     Data Driven Innovation
  •     Digital sustainability
The programme and updates can be found on the conference website >>
