According to various rankings, Germany is far below the European average in the digitisation of public administration. To counteract this lag, the IZT was commissioned to conduct a technology assessment. The institute analysed the innovation potential of a digital administration and included international good practice examples of sustainably successful administrative solutions. Finally, IZT developed three scenarios for public administration in Germany with a time horizon of 2030 and a focus on the innovation fields of artificial intelligence (AI) and distributed ledger and blockchain technologies (DLT, Blockchain). The Hertie School of Governance prepared two expert reports within this project.
