The Governing Mayor of Berlin – Senate Chancellery

Senatskanzlei Berlin

Birth certificate or housing benefit – 253 services are currently available for application online by Berlin residents. And what’s more: conditions for everyone will be simplified before the end of this year solely thanks to the digital registration certificate. This is because the capital has a clear goal: making it unnecessary to visit the Citizens’ Office. In future the data will go to the office and not the Berlin residents.  

Modernising administration and digitalization are a top-level concern:

Kai Wegner, the Governing Mayor of Berlin, will present his ideas about the transformation of the Berlin Metropolis under the conditions of digitalisation. And Martina Klement, the new CDO of the State of Berlin, will step up to talk about how the great challenges can be managed. Motto: No fax given!

An exciting line-up awaits you in the Berlin Laboratory at our stand in the arena:

Open Data – 10 years after its first one, Berlin has now updated its Open Data Strategy. Here it is, hot off the press.

Gemeinsam (together) Digital: Berlin – visionary technical drawings and actual building plans. This is the reconstruction programme towards a smart Berlin, via pilot-projects, interactive methods, prototyping of civic services, and much more.

Promoting engagement – digital tools for Berlin’s civil society, like the “Digital Vereint” (digitally united) platform, or democracy online: algorithms, A.I., and how to get a grip on the problem of racism and hate speech.

Citizens’ participation – What potential lies in – the central platform for open source participation by residents for Senate administration and district authorities?

Back and forth between government departments – now on hold. Anyone who wants to relax occasionally is warmly invited to play table tennis instead. We will dispose of “departmental ping-pong” and are looking forward to seeing who will join us in this challenge.
