Digital and Sustainable

How can we use the potential of digital technologies to support sustainable development? The Informatics and Sustainability (ISR) group, jointly founded by UZH and Empa in 2010, is devoted to research on interactions between the digital transition and the transition towards sustainability. Check our research and publications pages to find out more.

ISR researchers are working at Empa's Technology and Society Lab TSL or at the Department of Informatics IFI at UZH. The inter-institutional and interdisciplinary group is led by Prof. Lorenz Hilty.
