Who we are

We are a team of young scientists who want to take a critical look at the megatrend digitalization. Our project is a cooperation between the Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IÖW) and the Technische Universität Berlin. With the TU Berlin, the Center for Technology and Society (ZTG) and the chair of Economic Education and Sustainable Consumption are the main participation institutions.

Our Contribution

Our project is sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the framework of socio-ecological research (SÖF) over a period of five years (2016-2021). During this time, we want to finish four dissertations, one habilitation (post-doc research) and an establish professorship. But above all, we would like to contribute to the fact that digitalization is discussed in a way that it contributes to change society towards a more environmentally friendly and democratic society.
