Digitalisation in Europe

Digitalisation in Europe is in full swing and increasingly of strategic importance for the European project. According to the European Commission “the twin challenge of a green and digital transformation has to go hand-in-hand”. This conference will engage in the interdisciplinary space where digitalisation and sustainability intersect in Europe. The small conference will bring together academics, policymakers, business leaders and civil society to upgrade our canon of conception, approaches and narratives on sustainable digitalisation.

Twin-challenge of a green and digital transformation

The objective of this conference is to explore from a multi-disciplinary perspective the theory and practice of meeting the twin-challenge of a green and digital transformation. Cloud computing’s energy consumption is steadily growing making the case for its very own sustainability ever more pressing. Putting sustainable data infrastructures central, this conference seeks to address four themes:

  • The European Green Deal in digital transformation
  • Data Centers at the Crossroads: A dialogue on digitalisation and sustainability 
  • Policy dialogue: Civic participation and contestation of data infrastructures
  • Digital sustainability through the lens of energy-value trade-offs
