Good DEEDs Project aims to “reduction of the environmental footprint of digital with a specific focus on their teaching in a professional context that will become increasingly characterized by the ubiquity of sensor systems of the so-called Internet of Things and related data analysis systems based on machine learning.”
In this project, we mainly focus on various concepts such as digitalization and sustainability on energy systems, digital footprint, and energy efficiency to provide information and educational material to teachers and students.
