What role does computer science play to help to reduce CO2 emissions or minimize the deployment of our scarce resources? How can you yourself contribute to the green transition?

At this exclusive half-day event for DIKU Business Club members, you will gain insight into recent research initiatives in the intersection of computer science and green transition as well as have the opportunity to continue the dialogue with our researchers afterwards.

We have invited selected researchers and research leaders to give inspirational talks. We have invited Too-Good-To-Go to share experiences. And the SCIENCE Green Solutions Centre will introduce you to research initiatives and collaboration possibilities.

You will have the opportunity to continue the dialogue with the speakers afterwards, you can discuss your own ideas and efforts with our researchers and get feedback whilst enjoying a light refreshment. We will guide you through this session. More info to come!
