What are the prospects for hybrid working in the home office and in the office? How can AI support teaching and learning processes? What digital solutions are there for the cultural sector in times of limited live events? Which cooling technologies and concepts are efficient, low-emission and at the same time affordable in emerging markets? Our four new short topic profiles from Horizon Scanning offer compressed answers to these current questions and impulses for pandemic times and beyond. 

The topic short profiles of the inquiry cycle in the second half of 2020 stem from a generation of 14 topic outlines, from which the following four topics were selected after extensive discussion by the TAB team based on their relevance in societal discourse and in terms of potential need for legislative action:

The individual topic profiles (only in German) are between 7 and 9 pages in length. They conclude with a description of a possible in-depth treatment and include a detailed list of sources. The topic short profiles also provide impulses for the TAB topic identification process of the parliamentary groups and committees and can be used as sources of information for everyday parliamentary work.

Horizon scanning has been carried out at TAB since 2014. All 44 issue briefs published to date can be found here.
