Parldigi MasterClass

The digital transformation constantly offers new and attractive technologies that are developed by IT companies, brought to market and used by the population, the state and the economy. As a result, the need for politicians to respond to these new possibilities and the associated opportunities and risks is also constantly changing.

The Parldigi MasterClass aims to educate members of parliament elected at national and cantonal level on technical and legal fundamentals so that they can form a competent and independent opinion on upcoming decisions. By means of short presentations and discussion contributions from qualified researchers, scientifically sound and politically neutral content is conveyed on current issues relating to digitalization.

The Digital Society Initiative organizes the Parldigi MasterClass together with Verein Parldigi and the support of the Stiftung Mercator Schweiz.
