Digital policy Brandenburg
Supporting the digital policy of the federal state of Brandenburg
In December 2018, the federal state government of Brandenburg adopted a digitization strategy, which will guide the digitization processes of the Land in the upcoming years. The strategy includes 202 measures in seven fields of action which are partly already being implemented. Closely linked to this process is the establishment of a digital advisory board consisting of nine digital experts. The digital advisory board has developed ten guiding theses for a “digital Brandenburg”. These theses are part of the digitization strategy.
In addition, the state chancellery of Brandenburg is organizing further actions and events related to digital policy. One of these was a series of appointments with Brandenburg´s “digital pioneers” – visited by the state secretary who is responsible for digitization issues in Brandenburg. During these appointments the state secretary was talking directly with the digital pioneers to get information about their progress with various digitization issues.
Other events were focussing on the exchange of information among the federal states as well as on the networking aspect among the players within Brandenburg.
Last but not least a monthly newsletter informed about digitization issues on the EU-, national as well as on Brandenburg level.
The project´s aim was to actively promote the digital policy of the Federal state of Brandenburg, to inform society about digitalisation-related topics and activities and to support the societal debate about digitalisation.
