In such a way, the participants of the conference aim to provide a better understanding of the world in which we live. This includes the assessment of emerging technologies, the scrutiny of ethical, legal and social aspects of contemporary scientific practices as well as the transition to environmentally friendly and socially desirable techno-scientific futures. Thematic Themes of the conference are e.g. Digitalization of Society, Sustainable and Innovative Public Procurement & Ecodesign, Towards Low-Carbon Energy and Mobility Systems, Gender – Technology – Environment, Lifesciences and Biotechnology.
