Building our Future - on the digital transformation of Austria

Digitization is essential, above all, to ensure the growth and future security of a country. National as well as international competitiveness and ability to act is also based on a jointly implemented digitization. For this reason, the federal government has several current and future projects not only in the planning stage, but already in the implementation phase. These are intended to catapult Austria to a new digital level and offer us an improved quality of life in all areas of life. Among other things, the first Austrian digitization report was also summarized. It contains around 125 flagship initiatives and projects from all ministries, which bring Austria's current and future digital initiatives to the forefront. The planned digitization measures cover countless areas, starting with a digital transformation in schools, education and research, initiatives for climate protection, simplification in human resources management, promotion of cybersecurity, simplified access to digital financial tools as well as legal issues for citizens, a digitized federal army as well as healthcare and many more.
