Berlin Science Week: Pairing Research Talks at Einstein Center Digital Future

Event note

What does smart clothing have to do with patient therapy? How do the issues of trust in digital services and urban traffic come together? The Pairing Research Talks of the Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF) bring together young scientists whose fields of research have nothing in common at first glance. The interdisciplinary format brings together the topics of digital health, digital transformation, electronic textiles and data science.

Following the presentations, the scientists will discuss differences, overlaps and new ideas together. The Pairing Research Talks will be moderated by Prof. Dr. Gesche Joost (UdK Berlin/ECDF) and will take place at the Robert Koch Forum in Wilhelmstraße in Berlin-Mitte.
