Matthias Wodniok #nextlevel Talk

On March 14, 2023, the #nextlevel talk "Digital administration, digital state with citizen proximity" took place in the new "Die Presse" studio. Austria is internationally regarded as a pioneer in the digitization of the public sector. Despite successful online services such as "FinanzOnline" and the "Digitales Amt" app, the goal has not yet been achieved. What is important in the digital transformation of the public administration? What challenges must be overcome? And how can online services optimally support the population?

Matthias Wodniok, Member of the Board of Fabasoft AG, Florian Tursky, State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Finance, Valerie Albrecht, Research Associate at the Center for E-Governance at Danube University Krems, Johannes Ferner, CEO of fiscaly and Wolfgang Pinkl, Director Business Transformation at EY, addressed these and other questions.

The event was moderated by Jakob Zirm, Head of the Business Department at the daily newspaper "Die Presse".
