Lunch Lecture Realised: Start-ups, software and sustainability

Note: This lunch lecture will take place on-campus, with free lunch! Enrollment is not necessary.

We are facing the biggest challenge of the century: climate change and the energy transition. In this talk, we dive into the subject and we discuss our role in developing software and advising organisations, and your potential role as a student, in battling this crisis.

Diederik Bakker, graduating MSc student Cyber Security, and Nando Tolboom, PhD candidate at the Energy, Materials and Systems research group, started Realised in 2019. We’d like to tell you the story of Realised and what it’s like to build a start-up during your studies. We believe that being transparent as an organisation goes a long way in battling the climate crisis, which is very much reflected in what we do for customers and the software we develop, and we’d like to show you how we are doing that. We talk about how (not) to develop sustainable software. What is necessary to make digital applications and the internet carbon neutral, and in what way can you positively influence this process? And finally, we look at your direct environment: the University of Twente and you as a student. What is the university doing to become carbon neutral, and how do we help them in this process? And what can you do to make your student house more sustainable?

Who, what, where, when...
