Digital to Physical (and back again)

The blend of the digital and physical worlds is changing our society fundamentally. With the rise of a truly digital society, fundamental questions and uncertainties about our future in the physical (or: real) world are raised.

In this track we will experiment with physical representation of data, physical presence in digital environments, interaction with smart objects. Also we focus on issues around trust and privacy in the context of a hyperconnected world. Our research and prototypes aim to have impact on business and society.


As track owner (- project manager – since spring 2018) of the track ‘Digital to Physical’ I connect business, applied research, education, municipality of Amsterdam and sustainable development. In various projects and events we bring multidisciplinary and multicultural learners together to work towards a proof-of-concept. The topics we work on are challenges our consortium partners currently face.

We are the Digital Society School –¬†where change takes shape. Read our manifesto here.
