What must the government and businesses do to ensure that Germany doesn’t miss out on digital transformation? What kind of expertise is necessary to manage this shift and what consequences can we expect? What framework conditions need to be set by the government and to what extent must firms take the initiative? What lessons can Germany learn from Silicon valley? 

We are thrilled to be welcoming a number of expert speakers to discuss these issues in an exclusive event at ZEW.

This German-language event is jointly organised by ZEW and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing of the State of Baden-Württemberg.
