Do we need an emergency set for digital crises? (Brauchen wir ein Notfallset für digitale Krisen?) This was the topic of the last PolitTalk Digitales Zürich in January. The experts Melanie Koller, Daniel Nussbaumer, Ivano Somaini and Arno Stark discussed the Internet, which has become practically essential for the survival of Zurich's citizens, the companies based here and the public service in the canton.

At yesterday's meeting, the Zurich Kantonsrat (cantonal council) approved the digitalization initiative of the Zurich universities. With a sum of 300 million francs, the four Zurich universities will be able to start their digitalization offensive in the new year.
In early December 2019, the Research Council approved 37 projects for NRP 77 "Digital Transformation". We are pleased that representatives of the University of Zurich and members of the Digital Society Initiative are involved in many of the 37 projects. Congratulations!
