Invitation to DIZH Research Cluster on 4 February 2021

The event series of the DIZH Research Cluster addresses researchers of the UZH, the ZHAW, the ZHdK and the PHZH as well as further interested people. It offers them the opportunity to network and to discuss projects pertaining to digitalisation. During the Kick-off event on 23 November 2020, which has attracted more than 90 people, the organisers decided to set up future meetings in the format form follows function. This format allows us to respond to the varying needs of interested parties; a chosen format will thus suit its intended purpose. The following events offer the researchers an opportunity to get to know one another and discuss possible collaborations.
