How we strengthen the Digital Strategy's lighthouse projects through networking

Nineteen lighthouse projects radiate from the Federal Government's digital strategy. Each ministry has contributed at least one project to the strategy and is responsible for its implementation. These projects highlight the opportunities and possibilities of digitalization, pursuing a variety of goals: from a data institute to a platform for online civil court proceedings.

The DigitalService is collaborating with the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV) to network these projects and create spaces for exchange, learning, and growth. In this blog post, our colleague Benjamin Jadkowski, Project Lead for Digital Strategy at DigitalService, and Ulrich Reinfried, a consultant at the BMDV, explain our approach and introduce other partners involved in this initiative.
