Nowadays digital processes are common in nearly all areas of life. They are transforming our ways to communicate, our working life, the education system, business and economy, industry and public administration. The Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs is proactively accompanying this digital transformation and focusing its priorities so that Austrians get the best possible benefits from it.
Special attention is paid to digital education. That part of Austria's population that so far has not been using the internet should be encouraged to acquire digital competences.
Another key objective is to respond to changing communication habits of citizens and to improve the digital offer provided by the public administration from egovernment to m(obile)government.
