SECP cordially invites you to read the interview of Prof. Dr. Ulrich Klüh with impact, the magazine for applied science and art. In this interview you will find answers on which trends Corona is strengthening, which new position the state could take in the context of a major transformation and how to deal with the issues of globalisation and growth.

Save the date: Power questions of digitisation

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.


SECP White Papers: New publication by Prof. Dr. Edel and Mr. Will

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.
