Lunch Talk Series: Digital pathways to sustainability

In our digital pathways to sustainability, we explore cutting edge research at the intersection of sustainability and digitalisation that is also highly relevant for practice and policy. Topics include grand challenges, green energy, responsible platforms, and sustainable entrepreneurship. Our aim is to bring researchers and practitioners with a mutual interest on these topics together, exchange ideas, and make research more visible, applicable and impactful.

This high-profile lecture series thrives to develop a European perspective on the processes of transformation that our societies are currently undergoing.


Once a month we publicly discuss the impact of digitalisation on the society. Therefore we invite special guests and engage in a dialogue with the audience.
