The policy pursued by the Hamburg Senate to turn Hamburg into smart and fully digitized city has been recognised as best-practice and honoured with the first prize by an independent jury as part of a Germany-wide competition hosted by the federal government. As representative of the Senate, Peter Tschentscher, Minister of Finance, accepted the distinction in Berlin at the “Future Congress Government and Administration 2015” in Berlin. The two-day congress on e-government and digital society was held under the patronage of Federal Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière.

“The jury has recognised the strategy of Hamburg to develop a modern and efficient public administration, with its decision”, Tschentscher said during the award ceremony in Berlin. Today, the administration of the Hanseatic city offers to citizens and investors more than 70 online procedures and portals with a wide variety of sub-processes. The award confirms the steps taken so far to turn Hamburg into smart city and encourages all stakeholders to take part in the Senate’s strategy for the digital city, together with companies, universities and many other partners.
