Cover "Digital Strategy 2025"

Everyone is affected by the digital transformation: employers and employees, students and families, young and old. In the country and in the city. In the workshop next door, and in large corporations. This offers major opportunities - but also creates challenges. Digital infrastructure, connected factories, data sovereignty (the control of personal data), education designed to respond to the new demands, new business models and technologies - we need to plan the way we tackle these issues.

Our Digital Strategy 2025 aims to show how the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy is setting the main priorities, developing expertise and taking new approaches to making a digital Germany possible. We want to highlight the next steps that need to be taken now. In particular, however, we want to demonstrate that the era of isolated solutions has come to an end. Only by working across organisations and in networks will we be able to find the answers we need for our future.
