The Grand Opening of the Center for Climate IT
December 7, 2022
On 7 December 2022, the Center for Climate IT launched with an event at the IT University. The afternoon featured a presentation of the center’s vision from Head of Center Steffen Dalsgaard and Associate Professor James Maguire, a talk on climate sustainability at ITU from Vice-Chancellor Per Bruun Brockhoff, and research presentations from ITU-based researchers Associate Professor Anna Vallgårda from Digital Design, PhD Fellow Ane Rahbek Vierø and Associate Professor Michael Szell from Computer Science, and Associate Professor James Maguire from Business IT, who showcased their ongoing research into topics like data-driven city planning of bicycle routes; how design can help us take better care of our technological and other artifacts; and the burgeoning exploration of how to store data in DNA as well as the ethical questions this raises. A panel of external guests were also welcomed to discuss the future role of IT in green transitions. The panel consisted of Professor and Prorector at the University of Copenhagen Kristian Cedervall Lauta, CEO of DigitalLead Carolina Benjaminsen, CEO of Electricity Maps Olivier Corradi, and Director of Science at Villum Fonden Thomas Bjørnholm, all of whom gave their input on how to move climate IT research forward.

We have four regular events
- The TiP Salon runs weekly during the semester. We convene around constructive engagement with new publications, visitors to the group and work in progress. The meeting is open, and runs at 12:00-13:00 on Wednesdays. Please contact Zea Yde to sign up to the email list.
- Shut up and Write takes place every week on Wednesdays from 13:15 to 17:00. Based on the model promoted by Inger Mewburn, we commit to writing projects on the whiteboard and write in shorter sessions with breaks.
- The TiP Invited Speaker Series has been running since 2018, and each year 3-4 invited speakers present their work in a public forum. All welcome.
- The TiP Writing Workshop takes place twice a semester, where contributions from all members of TiP are welcome. The purpose of the workshop is to give and receive feedback on ‘in progress’ work. Practically the workshop entails reading all participants’ submission, being a ‘caring opponent’ on one particular text, and participating in constructive debate about the texts.
When PhD students are at the right stage of their studies, they resurrect the longstanding institution of the STS Reading Group. Previous seasons of the Reading Group can be found here
