Digitalisation and spatial development – “examples from abroad”

Debates about digitalisation and its effects have been and continue to be of great social and political significance. Whereas some view it – with considerable scepticism – as an irreversible megatrend, others see it as both the foundation of future value creation with concomitant structural change and the solution to a wide range of problems. New forms of transport and the mobility transition, new ways of working and communicating, changes in the production of goods and logistics, current marketing strategies as well as the energy transition: all are based on digital products and information technologies.

The reference framework for the sessions at the ARL Congress 2022: A SMART future? Digitalisation - Challenges for spatial development is socially inclusive and spatially sustainable development, both within Germany and within an international comparative context.
