Through this series of SciFY Academy initiatives (October 2023 – December 2023),
SciFY aspired to create a platform for discussion bringing together representatives of IT, the environment, and citizens. The purpose was to be informed and inspired about ways to achieve a more sustainable future!

Our goal was to co-discover:

  • how innovation can bring positive results,
  • what’s the role of technology, and what are its limits,
  • what the roles of man and society are.

Participants had the opportunity to learn about new technologies, practical tools, and ways to achieve sustainability.
