Digital transformation is omnipresent. How can we ensure that continuing digitalisation also generates sustainable benefits for our society?
The principle of digital sustainability provides an answer to this question. Digital sustainability describes how digital knowledge assets (data, content, software) have to be created and made accessible in order to create the greatest possible benefit for society and the environment. In concrete terms, this concerns current political challenges relating to digitisation in Switzerland, innovation and research, data protection, copyright and technical topics such as e. g. the protection of intellectual property. Open Data or Bitcoin/Blockchain.
The conference DINAcon 2017, which will take place for the first time on Friday, 20th October 2017, will address these issues. It is carried out by the Research Center for Digital Sustainability at the University of Bern in cooperation with the Parliamentary Group on Digital Sustainability and the associations CH Open, tcbe.ch and Opendata.ch in Welle7 Workspace near Bern railway station. More than 200 decision-makers and opinion leaders from politics, business, the public sector and the digitalization scene are expected to attend the conference.
This year, the CH Open is presenting the DINAcon Awards for the first time to honor the courage and innovative strength of companies, authorities, communities, developers and individuals. The awards will be presented at the first conference on digital sustainability DINAcon 2017, which will take place on Friday, 20th October, 2017 in Bern, Switzerland.
