About the Event
Can an app against Corona help? Will "contact tracing" through the Corona app lead to more state surveillance in the future? Should I download the app when it is released?
In short presentations, three experts will explain how the currently planned contact tracing application is supposed to function technically, what the legal framework is for this app and what such an app could mean for society. This will be followed by the opportunity to ask questions and join the discussion.
