As a result of the Corona crisis, the conference on “Power questions of digitisation” planned for March 2020 was cancelled. With regard to digitisation in the world of work, the crisis has given this development a decisive boost. Mobile work and virtual forms of communication are no longer just a marginal phenomenon, but ubiquitous. Advantages and disadvantages are becoming abundantly clear. The dependence on a few digital platforms and the danger of comprehensive surveillance are also becoming obvious. At the same time, more and more people and institutions are looking for alternatives that are data protection-friendly and oriented towards the common good.
Under these changed circumstances we want to make up for the conference on 19 and 20 January 2021 as a virtual conference. We ask everyone to make a note of this date now. Further information will follow after the summer break.
The article explores regional policy issues at the nexus of economic geography and the recent academic literature on the political economy of digitalization. The objective is to blend these two areas of research to derive a first set of preliminary policy implications for so called “Smart Region” strategies.
Ms. Katrin Redmann (SAP Innovation Lead & Country Manager DACH SAP University Alliances) spoke on Thursday, 25th o6th on the topic: “How corporate sustainability development goals serve as a leap-frog innovation for companies, associations and universities?

This article brings together various strands of debate on innovation in urban space and examines them using the example of innovation and technology parks (IuT parks). New forms of governance are discussed and examples of future-oriented design elements and development possibilities for IuT parks are shown, leading to innovation and creativity quarters. The article concludes with comprehensive recommendations for the transfer-oriented development of IuT-Parks.

A recent study shows: 60 % of the energy companies consider their staff insufficiently qualified for the digital transformation and 64 % have to postpone new projects and business ideas due to a lack of (digital) skills. The energy turnaround and digital transformation pose new challenges for HRM – new concepts for leadership and change management are required.
Teams of students have dedicated themselves to this task within the module “Business Administration M.Sc. Leadership and Change Management” in the SoSe 2020 in cooperation with HR managers and experts from the energy industry.
The results of these studies and projects will be presented and discussed in a public event at the university on July 17, 2020.

The panel discussion, in which Prof. Dr. Ulrich Klüh participated, is now available online on YouTube:
Freight transport has increased significantly in recent years. This has been accompanied by increasing environmental pollution through emissions and a growing use of traffic areas. The quality of life in cities is declining and conflicts with other road users are on the increase. One of the reasons for this development is the growing desire to deliver goods to the door. Innovative concepts are therefore needed to satisfy this demand in a way that is as compatible as possible for everyone.
A research project of the University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt together with the Research Lab for Urban Transport der FRA-UAS is pursuing exactly such a concept.
