How Will the Interplay between Sustainability and Digitalisation Develop in the Future? 

Are They Mutually Exclusive, Complementary, or Means to an End?

New Grand Narratives of Today: Sustainability and Digitalisation

For the third year, Corporate Innovation Days are set to take off — this time bringing together industry, academia, and governmental organisations to analyse and discuss the implications of sustainability in an increasingly digitalised and tech-centered commercial environment and society as a whole.

In recent years, political interest in sustainability has been growing all around the world. In adapting to recent trends and popular demand, the technological advances open doors to new innovative business models and opportunities, especially within the tech industry. From an academic perspective, the reinforced position of sustainability gives rise to new research avenues that will further contribute to the development of technologies and solutions that integrate progress, preservation, and feasibility.

SDC, ICDK, and DCCC invite you to join us for two exciting days of exploring industry insights and academic perspectives at the intersection of sustainability and digitalisation.
