The world is full of Data, but still we do not manage to make essential Information accessible for everyone. Our scope is to improve inclusive environments für All using Smartphones and sensors. We overcome information-barriers, improve informative and geographical orientation and give answers to FaQs connected with points of interest -PoI-. Herewith we rise an independent and autonomous participation in social and cultural live. Our aim is to make a city really smart for everyone, with or without a handicap.

Can we walk one city through the streets of another? Can we become tourists of our future cities by walking in them today? We've been looking for Augmented Reality in the wrong places. Actually maybe we shouldn’t be looking for it at all, maybe we should instead listen. This talk would suggest AudioSpatial Storytelling through two walking projects and would encourage us to explore our futures beyond data-driven-predictions while using two ancient human features: our imagination and our legs.

The capacity of humankind to store, transmit and manipulate information has been massively expanded in recent years as a result of a number of crucial innovations in computing and telecommunications technologies. Because of their general applicability, such technologies are having very significant effects in most areas of the economy, leading to a general acceleration in the pace of technical change. Work, its content, its organisation and design, and its regulation and protection are all undergoing change. These changes come with new realities and often bring a blurring of boundaries between different dimensions of work and between work, employment and non-work activity. Policymakers want to seize the opportunities for dynamic economic development and ensure that individual preferences can be followed. At the same time, they need to gain knowledge that will help to address the questions about effective regulation and how to ensure social protection in its broadest sense. Eurofound is the Agency of the European Union tasked with monitoring living and working conditions in Europe. This session will be an opportunity to learn more about the broader implications for working conditions, labour regulation and beyond of the increasing scale and scope of digital technologies for the labour market. The employment impact of the automation of services will be explored.The nature of employment in the digital economy will be discussed, with a focus on the opportunities but also the policy challenges associated with more specific forms of employment that are new or expanding as a result of technological change. The overall aim of our research is to provide a forward-looking analysis of trends. Eurofound wants to support the policy debate through the development of plausible scenarios, taking into account different growth models, outlining what the future world of work could look like.

Taxation is normally a boring issue. But as they say "Hey it's the economy stupid!" and you pay for it. Based on the #rp17 talk in Berlin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCNjCD7R75E we will update of the talk and provide an further overview why that matter is crucial for Europe. From Berlin, to Dublin to Thessaloniki. What combines this 3 locations with taxation? We will a provide a quick overview of the international taxation system. Explaining what a Double Irish Sandwich is. How come international corporations like Google only pay 2.4% taxes. And how your favorite tech companies (Google, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, ... ) evaded billions in taxes. This tax-dodging costs the European Union more than $50 billion. Annually. We bring this numbers into perspective.

Organizations try to live up to our fast paced digital world by building digital labs, startup-like cultures and experimenting with new ways of working. However, trying to just follow the speed of a digitized world soon becomes a trap. Jan-Philipp went to a monastery in the Myanmar jungle, meditating from sunrise to sundown to learn a century-old technique that can avoid falling into this "digital trap". While the technique helps to lead ourselves and others more effectively, we can also scale it to the entire organization. Research, Google, SAP and others have already proven that happier employees and higher productivity are well accepted side effects.

What if a climate action initiative were as popular as Uber? Imagine if for every apartment on Airbnb, the equivalent area of rainforest were restored. As daily habits, interactions and activities increasingly move online, tech companies have an unprecedented opportunity to harness the power of the global community and turn one of the most profitable, fast growing and global industries into the driving force behind accelerating climate action.

Learning technologies are the future of society. Some argue that they will become obsolete, but we believe that they will play a vital role in our daily lives. Learning technologies (or edtech) may not take the traditional application format on your mobile device in ten years, but instead, be integrated into your work life and personal life as wearable or even embedded devices. We have seen a jump to virtual reality and augmented reality followed just a step behind. What is the future? An exploration of what we have learned and what we have to learn about learning and teaching in a digital age. A session for anyone interested in changing the face of learning.
