Club Talk

What impact will digital technologies of the future have on public administration?

  • October 25, 2022
  • 10:00 – 11:30 AM CET

Digital technologies offer the opportunity to make the work of public authorities more efficient, to increase employee satisfaction and to counter the effects of demographic change. Citizens expect fast and customer-friendly processes and increasingly judge administrative actions by the use of digital procedures.

The successful evolution of digitization strategies requires dealing early on with the essential technological trends that will have a massive impact on our society in the coming years. What opportunities arise from the use of blockchain, the use of artificial intelligence or the development of the metaverse? Will the administration be nothing but a machine in the future? How can we prepare for the new requirements and technical challenges today?

TV presenter and journalist Cherno Jobatey is discussing this topic in the context of a club discussion with, among others:

  • Prof. Dr. Wilfried Bernhardt, Former State Secretary and Departmental Commissioner of BMI
  • Frank Wischerhoff, Pegasystems, Specialist for digital process automation

We warmly invite you to attend.

The event will take place on 25 October 2022, from 10.00 - 11.30 a.m., at Studio G3 (Gudrunstr. 3, 80634 Munich - near Rotkreuzplatz). Fingerfood will be offered afterwards.
