Why Berlin? – Panel discussion on digitalisation


Berlin 4.0: Fantasy or opportunity?

When it comes to digitisation, experts warn that Germany is lagging behind. Berlin, by contrast, appears confident in this arena. The city’s burgeoning digital economy is making a significant contribution to the new boom. If Berlin’s transformation to a future-proof smart city with smart infrastructure is to succeed, traditional and modern businesses, architecture and politics will all have to come together. How well equipped is the capital really for the digital age? For the tenth time, DomAquarée CityQuartier will be hosting an expert discussion.
