Homepage of the Centre Responsible Digitality (ZEVEDI)

Centre Responsible Digitality (ZEVEDI)
investigates ethical and legal aspects of digital transformation,
transfers knowledge into the economic sector and
communicates with politics and society.

about us


The core of the centre’s activities are ZEVEDI project groups. These interdisciplinary, integrative, self-governing groups are open to scientists of related fields from all Hessian universities. ZEVEDI ad hoc projects provide the framework for short-term research activities as well as advisory services for business and politics. ZEVEDI positions itself on a national and international level as a strong research partner in externally funded projects. ZEVEDI is also an important initiator and partner in dialogue with politics, society and business: the network creates discourse spaces and communicates to a broad public.
