The fossil free society will be digital

Denmark aims to become a fossil free society in 2050. In the next ten years, digital technologies are expected to play an enabling key role in the transformation of society in general, and in the transformation towards a low carbon economy in particular. By its history and its mission, the IT University of Copenhagen is naturally positioned to contribute to such a transformation through digital design, media and services.

We are a network of computer scientists, software engineers, interaction designers, media and communication scholars and social scientists focused on prototyping together a range of possible fossil-free energy futures. We thus denote our activities Energy Futures and we aim to grow into a strategic area for the IT University.
