policy recommendations
for the G7

Hasso-Plattner-Institut für Digital Engineering gGmbH

The Hasso Plattner Institute offers a practically-oriented computer science study program at an internationally recognized institute. This study includes the Germany-wide unique “IT-Systems Engineering” program and the new master programs: “Digital Health”, “Data Engineering”, and “Cybersecurity.”


Clean-IT: Policies to Support Energy-Efficient Digital Systems

The G7 should regard the rising energy-consumption of the global adoption of digital technologies and applications as a serious threat to the world climate and therefore monitor the issue, raise awareness on the topic in their respective states, incentivize research across states to discover methods of reducing the energy consumption of IT and finally negotiate standards which could be the basis for an internationally agreed on “clean-IT label”.
