In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

The Global Energy Transition: A Challenge for Research Centers
Main Lecture Hall (GSI)
Main Lecture Hall
Will we drive a hydrogen fueled Toyota Mirai, an electric Tesla Cybertruck or do we keep our Mercedes Diesel for the years to come? The question of our future energy system affects us all and is much more complex than the choice of a car. It can be expected, that climate change and the degradation of our environment will have disruptive effects on our entire society in the coming years. It has become clear, that a fast and efficient energy transition is a prerequisite for our children’s and grandchildren’s future. In the last 10 years, all basic components and concepts for a successful energy transition have become technically available, however the financial, legal and political regulations do not fuel the transformation sufficiently. Changes in our society will also affect research centers and future taxpayers will challenge not only their high costs, but also their heavy consumption of resources and energy. In order to maintain a high level of acceptance in the European society, most European research centers have programs to improve the sustainability of their activities at many levels. The reduction of its own footprint can be expected from science, but beyond that, the scientific community can play a leading role in demonstrating best practices for the energy transition of the whole society. The lecture takes you on a short journey into a future without fossil pollution.
