Digitalisation and Climate
How can the economic, ecological and social dimensions of a digital economy be made sustainable and fair for all parts of society? How can these infrastructures and competencies be used for climate protection? "Digitalisation and Climate" has set itself the goal of developing resource-conserving and equitable answers to these questions in several nations and establishing them locally. The research project is part of the research group Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and global digital Transformation.
Research formats & knowledge transfer
Based on the results of a Research Sprint and a related study, multi-stakeholder dialogs and public events are conducted in cooperation with Digital Transformation Centers (DTCs) of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in selected countries. In this way, knowledge networks are strengthened locally and expanded upon by linking them with other international partners. In addition, local specifics, opportunities and risks are recorded and taken into account.
