Tallinn University of Technology

You are most welcome to participate in an Open Lecture titled 'The Three Faces of Twin Transition: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly' on May 13 from 14:30 to 16:00.

An open lecture discussing the Twin Transition with a presentation by Prof Veiko Lember (TalTech) on the topic "The Three Faces of Twin Transition: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly", followed by a commentary by Prof Monamie Bhadra Haines (Virginia Tech) and further discussion involving BoostEuroTeQ Project team members and all attendees.

TalTech's Vice-Rector for Entrepreneurship, Erik Puura, gives the opening speech.

Ensuring that human actions remain within planetary boundaries has emerged as the paramount societal challenge of our time. Simultaneously, we find ourselves amidst the information and communication technologies (ICT) paradigm, where the organization and coordination of social and technological activities increasingly rely on the digital technologies. A widespread assumption is now emerging: the green and digital transitions can mutually reinforce each other. However, the interplay between digitalization and sustainability is multifaceted and multidirectional. The talk will try to unpack why and how the different ‘faces’ of twin transition matters for transition governance.

The Open lecture will take place in the Mektory InnovationHub (Raja 15).
