Data as raw material for a modern State


The SDGs and their respective indicators correspond to key societal, economic, ecological and social challenges. To tackle these challenges purposefully, the State, research and society do not require large volumes of data, but data of the highest possible quality. And we also need to be able to exploit the full potential of these data with the latest methods.
The central topic of the event is the State’s role in Switzerland’s data and information ecosystem. The event will address the question of how in a democratic system, the State can ensure that it does not overburden population and business and that its data are used not only as a basis for the administration’s work, but can also make a (greater) contribution to society, for the public good.

Protection plan: In view of the current health situation, a protection plan has been developed according to the guidelines of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health. Participation in the events is limited to 60 people in the Bernese Cantonal Bank and 100 people in the Bellevue Palace. Registration for the events is compulsory and enables contact details to be collected. The latter will be provided to the authorities if tracing is required. They will be deleted 14 days after the event. In addition, disinfectant gels will be made available at the entrance to the events, a distance between seats will be maintained and masks must be worn (except for panelists).
