About us

Digitalization is fundamentally changing science and society. This process of digitalization challenges existing paradigms, enables novel approaches for research and teaching, and requires new competences in a rapidly changing societal reality. It is the duty of all scientific disciplines and society as a whole to critically reflect on and shape these developments.

This is why the Digital Society Initiative was launched at the University of Zurich to take on this task and thus position the University of Zurich nationally and internationally as a competence center for the critical reflection of all aspects of the digital society.
