The world is in motion.

It is a fact that for centuries people’s ways of life have been influenced by the technological progresses faced by their generation. Examining this reoccurring idea of society and progress both framed by technology it´s clear how enormously each factor influences the other.

In a variety of settings, the ViennaUP community will tackle topics such as smart cities, digital humanism, impact-driven entrepreneurship, creative industries, gender equality, and sustainability. Today’s technology, which we already taken for granted, opens the doors to an even more creative world.

Let’s discover it throughout ViennaUP’22. Meet people from different backgrounds, learn from best practice examples across diverse industries and talk to forward-thinkers on what will matter in the future.
