The focus of the conference was the exchange of information on legal dogmatics, technical, economic, social and philosophical issues of law in the knowledge economy. Members of the Institute gave eight lectures and chaired three working groups.

In addition to medical methods, technical methods have been and are being used to combat pandemics - in Germany in form of the Corona warning app. But is this app compliant with the current data protection framework? In their lecture on February 16, Mathias Cellarius, SAP's Chief Privacy Officer, and Thomas Klingbeil took this question as an opportunity to examine data protection law in the pandemic. The lecture concludes the public lecture series "Data Protection in Practice".
