Matthias C. Kettemann
is organizing a digital workshop on crisis technologies and cooperation techniques together with Junges Forum: Technikwissenschaften (JF:TEC)
. The event will take place from 15:00-17:30 on Zoom.
Join us to discuss which technical developments are necessary, which social problems have to be solved and which legal steps have to be taken so that, according to the UN General Assembly in its Corona Resolution of early April 2020, "the unprecedented crisis caused by the COVID 19 pandemic can be alleviated and successfully reversed through leadership and sustainable global cooperation and solidarity."
If you want to join us, please register by sending an email to info@JFTEC.de
. The link for the event and instructions for participation via social media will be sent out a few days in advance.
About the Event
"There has never been so much knowledge about our ignorance and about the compulsion to act and live under uncertainty," Jürgen Habermas told the Frankfurter Rundschau at the beginning of April. How can the imponderables of the compulsion to act and regulate under uncertainty be technically cushioned? What role does technology-pooling play? What are the socio-cultural conditionalities of the use of human-centred technology? Is there an innovation-driven pandemic law that promotes a cooperation-oriented, open access-supported corona science revolution? How has technology contributed to overcoming the crisis?
Since its foundation, the Young Forum: Technikwissenschaften (JF:TEC) as an interdisciplinary network of young scientists has set itself the task of developing solutions to the challenges of current and future technology development and design. Time horizons shrink in the crisis, yet members of the JF:TEC take the time to take stock of the first months of technology development in the light of corona in an interdisciplinary view. Innovations must serve to improve the situation of people; in crises the contours of a committed technical science become clear, providing impulses for a necessary dialogue on the interaction between technology, people, society and the environment. The goal of JF:TEC is to contribute to a technology that people really want. In times of corona this has to be complemented: especially a technique and technologies that people really need have to be researched and promoted.
