In the evening of October 22, 2019, the Aspen Institute Germany will host a "Digital Dish" focusing on "The CDU’s Digital Strategy" with Nadine Schön, deputy chair of the CDU/CSU parliamentary group in the Bundestag with a special focus on the "Digital Agenda." Having been involved in digital policy for many years as a parliamentarian, she closely followed the genesis of both the Digital and AI Strategies of the Federal Government adopted in November 2018. Digital policy encompasses a broad spectrum of topics, including digital infrastructure, education, the digital economy, automation, future of work, start-up promotion, health, digital administration, research & development, privacy and IT security. What are the digital policy priorities of the CDU? How are these reflected in the Federal Government's digital strategy? And how can Germany and Europe build on their strengths to be more competitive on an international level? We will discuss these and other questions together with Nadine Schön. The discussion will be held in German and will be co-hosted by Telefónica Deutschland.
Digital Dish is a regular series that brings one or two provocative thinkers together for an intimate, off-the-record lunch or dinner to discuss issues related to the most pressing tech policy debates. It features prominent speakers including policy-makers, elected officials, activists, innovators, thought-leaders, business representatives from both sides of the Atlantic and a mix of frontier thinkers on tech policy and specialists focusing on the U.S.-European relationship.
