Gesellschaftliche Herausforderungen der Vierten Industriellen Revolution

14. November 2018 im Forschungszentrum Jülich

 

Die Vierte Industrielle Revolution bringt enorme wissenschaftliche und technologische Veränderungen mit sich und wirkt sich zunehmend auf immer mehr Lebensbereiche aus. Als Folge dieser Entwicklungen werden Zukunftsbilder projiziert, die von Massenarbeitslosigkeit und sozialer Spaltung der Gesellschaft bis hin zu vollständig automatisierten Gesellschaften reichen, in denen traditionelle Beschäftigungen insgesamt obsolet sein könnten. Oft ist es keineswegs eindeutig, ob es sich dabei um utopische Zukunftsvisionen oder ernstzunehmende Herausforderungen für unsere Gesellschaft handelt. Sicher scheint jedoch, dass es im Bereich der Beschäftigung sowohl auf makroökonomischer als auch individueller Ebene zu bedeutenden Änderungen kommen wird.

Ein tiefergehendes Verständnis über die sich daraus ergebenen Implikationen erfordert dabei nicht zuletzt eine Auseinandersetzung mit den technischen Möglichkeiten und dem gesellschaftlichen Umgang mit Technik insgesamt.

Darüber hinaus eröffnen Zeiten des Umbruchs oft auch Möglichkeiten, fehlgeleitete Entwicklungen – etwa im Umgang mit natürlichen Ressourcen – zu korrigieren. Welche Chancen und Risiken entstehen also durch die anstehenden technologischen Umbrüche? Und wie können diese im Sinne einer nachhaltigen Entwicklung – sozial, ökologisch und ökonomisch – gestaltet werden?

Über diese und weitere Fragen möchten wir im Rahmen des High-Level Seminars mit Ihnen diskutieren.


Anmeldung per E-Mail (Name und Institution) wird erbeten bis Freitag den 26. Oktober 2018.

Die Teilnehmerzahl ist begrenzt und eine Teilnahme nur nach vorheriger Anmeldung möglich.

Resilience of Energy Systems and Energy Security

February 14th – 15th, 2018, Universitätsclub Bonn e.V., Bonn, Germany


Current transformations of the European energy system have significant implications for energy infrastructures. The European energy infrastructure is vulnerable to numerous strategic risks, such as cyber-attacks and chokepoints in grid architecture. The “Energy Union” could help to counter these challenges on the EU level, in order to increase energy security and resilience. However, improvements also depend on the EU-member states’ perceptions of energy security. They can diverge, not only between but also within states. Thus, modelling and measuring energy security and the resilience of critical energy infrastructures is essential.
Electricity is emerging as the key feature of the transforming energy system, rendering critical energy infrastructures even more integral to European energy security. Securing electricity supply comes with particular risks, such as cascading effects. To cope with the system’s complexity, its management is increasingly digitalized. The concepts of energy security and resilience offer an approach to identify and assess emerging challenges to electricity supply infrastructures and to conceptualize visions of the future energy system. Such visions need to consider questions of governance and regulation, especially with regard to risks emanating from cyber space.
The IEK-STE high-level seminar on “Resilience of energy systems and energy security” will discuss these issues on two consecutive days. On the first day, the session “Challenges in European energy security and resilience” will define European energy security via its political, sociological and methodological premises. On the second day, the specific challenges to electricity supply infrastructures will be discussed in the second and final session, “Challenges in electricity supply security and resilience”.

Scenarios – Methods and Meanings


September 12, 2017, Universitätsclub Bonn e.V., Bonn, Germany


Scenarios are a common tool for decision support in industry and politics. However, scenarios are facing various challenges nowadays ranging from transparency issues across embedding scenarios into their bigger context to the interpretation of scenario results. The high-level seminar serves as a platform to discuss recent developments in this field – specifically population and energy scenarios, the meaning and use of scenarios as well as the role of participatory modelling.

International School on Energy Systems (ISES)


September 3-8, 2017, Kloster Seeon, Bavaria, Germany.


ISES, hosted by Forschungszentrum Jülich (partners HITEC-Helmholtz Interdisciplinary Doctoral Training in Energy and Climate Research, University of Technology Sydney, Universität Bonn) is designed for young researchers and young professionals in the fields of energy economics, energy technologies, political and social science and related disciplines who are interested to discuss the transformation of energy systems and gain interdisciplinary insight. The goal of the school is to develop a deeper understanding of the challenges which concern today´s and future energy systems as well as the necessity to manage transformation processes towards sustainability.
The energy infrastructure of a country provides a fundamental means for societal development and economic growth. Energy systems comprise the technologies required for the conversion of primary energy carriers to final energy, meeting the demand of society and economy. Over the past century, the trade of fossil fuels has become a backbone of the global economy. However, environmental pollution, climate change, and resource depletion force societies to reassess their energy choices. Corresponding political decision making in accordance with goals like sustainable development and the mitigation of climate change have led to different approaches of transforming the unsustainable energy systems of today into sustainable energy systems for the future. In order to understand the characteristics of future energy systems and the obstacles and drivers of transformation processes, multidisciplinary expertise as well as inter- and transdisciplinary approaches are required that are not yet covered by standard academic curricula.

Management of Natural Resources from the Perspective of Sustainable Development.


January 12, 2017, Bonner Akademie für Forschung und Lehre praktischer Politik (BAPP) GmbH, Bonn, Germany.


Throughout history, humanity has rarely been able to achieve an equitable allocation and distribution of limited natural resources. In this process, the provision of and access to energy has continuously played a significant role. Beginning with von Carlowitz in the early 18th century, renewed by the Club of Rome and the Brundtland Commission, the call for sustainable development has manifested itself and finally lead to the implementation of the UN-SDGs in 2015. The high-level seminar serves as a platform to discuss recent developments in this field – specifically energy research, the role of planetary resource boundaries, the moral obligation for integrated resource management, as well as the challenges of sustainable civilization.
