Could you imagine a life without e-learning, social media or online shopping? Today, almost every area of life is dominated by the Internet. This brings many benefits, but on the other side we are worried about a lack of privacy or personal isolation.

In 2014, we will be focusing on these developments: It will be all about digital society. We will have a look at specific examples, find out how the Internet has changed society and how it shapes everyday life. f you want to tell us how the Internet has influenced your life or would like to share your opinion on the topic, please participate in our Community group ‘Digital Society’. We look forward to your comments!


From 12 June to 10 July 2014, the second virtual hands-on project took place in the Alumniportal community, which confronted the 18 participating teams from four continents with great challenges. This year, all the projects were related to the Digital Society.

Here you can find the most important project results and the winning teams.
