The upcoming Electronics Goes Green conference 2020 is an outstanding event for the growing global community of scientists, product developers, business managers, and policy makers working on environmentally benign processes, products, systems, and business models in and for the electronics and ICT industry. Digitalization leads to new opportunities, but also challenges for a sustainable development. The Circular Economy requires new product concepts, but also changed business models involving many more actors across value chains. Emerging technologies require critical raw materials, new exotic composites, and adapted recycling processes. 5G will be all around shortly with significant benefits and opportunities, but at the cost of massive data flows and an ever growing network infrastructure. We have to get the balance right today and scientific evidence can pave the way. Substance restrictions, material efficiency requirements, and waste legislation can be part of the solution – or barriers for innovation. Let’s discuss how to do it right and effective. The ICT industry has a major role to play to stay below 1,5°C warming. We invite you to a scientific conference that explores the facets of green electronics. Fraunhofer IZM is very proud to be a stakeholder in this field and has been the organization behind the conference from the beginning. Join us and share your thoughts, best practices, solutions, and findings along product lifecycles at the Electronics Goes Green 2020. You are invited to submit abstracts matching the following conference topics: https://electronicsgoesgreen.org/call-of-contributions/#egg-list-of-topics. Abstracts can be submitted online until February 17, 2020.
