    For most people, the word "fashion" evokes thoughts of cuts, colors and patterns - but why not of live evaluations of vital functions or training sessions for rehabilitation patients? Up to now, products of the fashion industry have been largely analogous. The project Re-FREAM, however, was created to design smart clothes in the digital area.

    Apple’s sustainability strategy is maybe the most ambitious in the ICT industry and we are excited and proud to announce that Sarah Chandler, their Senior Director of Operations and Environmental Initiatives, will be joining us for our live day to share "Apple’s roadmap to 2030: Its innovative approach to carbon neutrality and a circular supply chain". In 2020 Philips’ 5-year "Healthy People, Sustainable Planet" program is coming to a closure. Before launching the next 5-year program it is time to reflect and look back and what was achieved and even more importantly what can be learned from these achievements. The presentation will focus on the topics of Climate Change, Ecodesign and Circular Economy and give an overview of what has worked well in the last 5 years and what pitfalls should be avoided. Don’t miss both keynotes on September 1.
