SCIENCE MAGAZINE SOCIETYBYTE

We are a science magazine of Bern University of Applied Sciences and focus on digital transformation with the human being at the centre. We publish scientific articles and interviews about research projects, results and studies by our scientists, our partners and researchers from related organisations. We connect science and practice, whereby administration and politics are just as much a part of practice for us as the economy.
