On 21 October 2019, the annual event of the Network for Higher Education Teaching of the Hochschulforum Digitalisierung (University Forum on Digitalization) (HFD) took place at the World Conference Center in Bonn. Participants had the opportunity to exchange ideas with like-minded people at this network meeting for university teaching.
On 8 and 9 October, representatives of media centres, university libraries, centres for communication and information processing as well as interested researchers met in Osnabrück for the 20th DINI Annual Conference (Deutsche Initiative für Netzwerkinformation e. V.). The motto was: “1999-2019-2039: Innovative projects in research, teaching and infrastructure”. Among other things, the SIDDATA project was represented with a poster. A student contribution on the topic “digital companion” also dealt with digital assistants and was one of the winners of the student competition.
