Topic network Information and Communication Technology

The scientific community depends on reliable, robust and increasingly powerful information and communication infrastructures. Therefore, ICT is both a guarantor and a driver of social development. From a scientific perspective, these technologies are not only a vital prerequisite for market development in general, but also represent an important market in and of themselves.

This topical network questions the fundamental role that ICT plays in enabling infrastructure for industry and society, using specific current developments and technology trends as examples. The members of the topical network identify interdisciplinary knowledge gaps in the strongly differentiated ICT field and initiate projects and events relating to these current topics in cooperation with additional experts.
