At the Univention Summit 2023 on January 17, 400 CIOs from companies, municipalities and federal states will meet with software and hardware manufacturers as well as IT service providers to network and exchange experiences. The agenda will focus on Digital Sovereignty and successful projects such as the Sovereign IT Workplace, dPhoenix Suite, Gaia-X, Sovereign Cloud Stack and the digitalization of school IT. You will also learn everything about the roadmap of UCS and UCS@school, the Univention ID Broker and our new roles and rights model.

The congress program offers you a varied mix of technology and best practice presentations, keynotes and panel discussions. In workshops and the exhibition with around 30 IT manufacturers, you can quickly and comprehensively find out about a wide range of proven solutions and meet their providers in person. An evening event with a show program and joint dinner complete the day. On the morning of January 18, the event continues with workshops, round tables and a technician barcamp in small groups.

Open exchange, relaxed atmosphere, a lot of expertise and enthusiasm around Open Source – that’s what makes the Univention Summit special for us and why it’s the right stage for our video conferencing solution OpenTalk.

The network I build at the Univention Summit is (almost) as important as the infrastructure network I maintain for the schools in the district. That’s why I’m always happy to travel to Bremen.

It was a great pleasure to discuss again the possibilities of file exchange, integration into existing file storages via SAMBA and collaborative editing with medium-sized users and educational institutions. We took home valuable suggestions. As the most frequently installed 3rd party app from the App Center we are also looking forward to the next Summit!

he use of digital offerings in schools becomes increasingly important for us as a provider of educational media. Teachers and students should be able to use them without hurdles and barriers and in infrastructures that are as open as possible. A prerequisite for this is good interaction between all school IT offerings. The Univention Summit is an excellent place for inspiration and exchange on this topic.

100% Open. An open and honest exchange between manufacturers and IT service providers from which both sides benefit.

A characteristic feature of the Univention Summit is the open exchange at a high professional level from different perspectives. In a pleasant atmosphere, participants exchange information about very practical or technical, but also planning topics such as media development planning, IT support structures, requirements specification and evaluation. This is how digital transformation can succeed in the educational sector.
