Talk Series: Digitaler Salon

Once a month we publicly discuss the impact of digitalisation on the society. In our discussion series, we shed light on network phenomena, discuss the advantages and disadvantages of technical changes and provide food for thought.

The Digitaler Salon takes place on the last Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. on the premises of HIIG. At the same time, the event can be followed on the event page in the livestream and commented on Twitter under #digsal.
