The section E-CONOMY deals with the effects of the rapid digitization of our society on our economy and the current and future participants. Our society has already coped well with machine, electrical and computer revolutions. Now there are new technologies available or ready to be implemented that go beyond all geographical, national or even regulatory limits. Robots begin to undermine their own economic claim to “appreciation through work” by using robots. How does the service stronghold of Switzerland cope with the coming revolution?

Why join?

As a specialist group, meetings are held 3-4 times a year in a manageable setting in the Zurich / Lucerne area. Based on short lectures by computer scientists, futurologists, psychologists, philosophers or spinners, which should encourage discussion and exchange. The economy of our country is a complex system, and the technical possibilities entail risks as well as opportunities. All the more it is necessary to prepare for what is unstoppable and digital to our society. We want to enable our members to get an honest and diverse picture. Likewise, opinions and ideas of our members should be heard at E-CONOMY.

Further details on the membership fees (discounts, collective membership, etc.) can be found in the SI overview. Registration is made via the SI entry form.
