The German government is looking for advise on digitalization and, earlier this month, it called on the expertise of Network Chair Beth Simone Noveck as part of that effort. Together with nine internationally-recognized experts from academia, research, and the private-sector, Noveck joined Germany’s new Digital Council. The body will help the government take advantage of the opportunities offered by new technological developments.
From the press release:
“The Digital Council will in future advise the German government on the important matter of digitalisation. Its ten members come from the realms of academia, research and the private sector and bring with them a wide range of practical experience. With their help, the opportunities offered by digitalisation are to be harnessed for the people of Germany. The body of experts will be chaired by Katrin Suder.”
