Green ICT Connect 2024

Science, business and industry will come together in mid-October 2024 with a common goal: Shaping sustainable and environmentally friendly progress in ICT.

Date: October 16 and 17, 2024
Venue: Change Hub Berlin, Hardenbergstr.32, 10623 Berlin
Language: German

Participation in the conference is also possible via livestream.
Exciting research and industry activities relating to the topic of sustainability in microelectronics will be presented in the three technological specialist areas:

  • Sensor edge cloud systems
  • Energy-saving communication infrastructures
  • Resource-optimized electronics production

What it is about

The digital transformation in industry, business, and society and the increasing complexity of multifunctional microelectronic systems are leading to rising data volumes and resource and energy consumption. Against this backdrop and the background of climate protection targets, the development of electronic systems and ICT faces the challenge of sustainably reducing energy and resource requirements and making technologies more efficient.
