ITeG has been an interdisciplinary research center for more than 15 years. The Corona pandemic has presented new challenges to the collaboration at ITeG. Switching to meeting digitally, organising all events online and responding to the current issues of the day were unexpected challenges and moved us forward. The pandemic has also made it very clear that the question of sustainable, socially desirable design and embedding of IT products, which is central to the ITeG research center, is always anew. 2020 brought a sudden acceleration in the shaping of our digital society and at the same time made the struggle for a responsible use of IT tangible.
