Science week: The Digital Society

Published: 2017-04-19

Digitalisation permeates our entire society, and the trend continues at tremendous speed. Where are we going and what challenges and opportunities await us? What are the major issues and how can digitalisation improve the society? Is it even possible to imagine what the future will look like?

During this science week, we will discuss the interplay between technology and
society, such as healthcare, cultural development and personal integrity. We
will also examine cyber bullying and the mental health among our youths and
question how sustainable the digital society really is. There will be a number of
interesting lectures by prominent researchers and international guests that will
take a look at our present and future society, as well as a number of exciting
activites for the whole family.
