Innovation Profile



short description
Students of the Master's program in Sustainable Development - Energy & Resources annually work on projects to create a sustainable campus. ICT herein is a recurring theme, but unfortunately this never led to concrete results. Although it is frequently noted that computer workstations are abundantly enabled, no action has been taken yet to reach a solution. Sustainability plays a minor role in ICT and there is a lack of motivation to get started. It is also unclear who should take the initiative. Therefore, different faculties and the Green Office Utrecht are working together and want to ensure that all computers are logged out automatically and put into low power sleep mode.
