Science Year 2014 - The Digital Society

Science Year 2014 - The Digital Society

Digital technologies play an important role in our lives whether in everyday household devices, in communication, in science or in industry. Science Year 2014 was dedicated to the topic “The Digital Society”. The rapid developments taking place in this sector were the focus of national attention in 2014. What opportunities do they present? What questions are raised?

Digital identities, digital economy, digital research. These are only three of the numerous topics about which the citizens attending the different Science Year 2014 “The Digital Society” events were informed. In addition, they were warmly invited to participate in panel discussions and express their opinions about the issues surrounding the digital future.

As in previous years, the National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina contributed to the Science Year’s educational programme by organizing several events. In the process, experts provided insights into current research projects – both those in which digital technology is being further developed and those whose purpose is to play a supporting role in the digital revolution and influence its consequences for the society.
