Electronics Goes Green 2020
is now an online event!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to move the Electronics Goes Green 2020 Conference online. It will now be an on-demand virtual event of pre-recorded presentations combined with a live event on September 1, 2020.

Meet us online on September 1, 2020
We are currently finalizing our agenda and the details of our new format to bring you the most interesting, inspiring and interactive Electronics Goes Green that the current circumstances allow… more details to follow. September 1 will contain keynote presentations, discussion and feedback formats, so the conference community can still meet in the virtual format.

To limit the live event online to one day and to still give you the chance to see as many presentations as possible, all contributions will be made available to you online as video presentations 10 days prior to and a couple of weeks after the conference. Unlike the real Electronics Goes Green Conference, where you would have to choose between five parallel sessions, this gives you the opportunity of viewing all presentations in your own time! All conference papers will be published as originally planned.

Conference Fees
The conference fees have been reduced to EUR 500 for regular attendants (early bird) and for speakers.

The feedback from the community regarding the new conference format has been very encouraging so far and we look forward to meeting old and making new friends online on September 1!


The Story of
Daisy, Alexa, and Greta

The upcoming Electronics Goes Green conference 2020 is an outstanding event for the growing global community of scientists, product developers, business managers, and policy makers working on environmentally benign processes, products, systems, and business models in and for the electronics and ICT industry. Digitalization leads to new opportunities, but also challenges for a sustainable development. The Circular Economy requires new product concepts, but also changed business models involving many more actors across value chains. Emerging technologies require critical raw materials, new exotic composites, and adapted recycling processes. 5G will be all around shortly with significant benefits and opportunities, but at the cost of massive data flows and an ever growing network infrastructure.

We have to get the balance right today and scientific evidence can pave the way. Substance restrictions, material efficiency requirements, and waste legislation can be part of the solution – or barriers for innovation. Let’s discuss how to do it right and effective. The ICT industry has a major role to play to stay below 1,5°C warming. 

We invite you to a scientific conference that explores the facets of green electronics. Fraunhofer IZM is very proud to be a stakeholder in this field and has been the organization behind the conference from the beginning. Join us and share your thoughts, best practices, solutions, and findings along product lifecycles at the Electronics Goes Green 2020.
