What makes this project special to me:

"The simultaneous inspection and discussion of the broad contexts of digital transformation and sustainability as well as very detailed discussions about single aspects makes the complexity of the issue of the concurrent developments in the fields of digitalization and sustainability visible within and beyond scientific contexts."
