Welcoming our Sounding Board

The project "Digital Europe 2030“ will be advised by experts with strong backgrounds in both theory and praxis

Beginning in May, our programme "Digital Europe 2030 – The public sphere and digital sovereignty" will be supported by a Sounding Board. The committee consists of experts with strong backgrounds in both theory and praxis and will accompany the project in an advisory capacity, thus adding to quality assurance.

We are very pleased to have convinced the following experts to join the Sounding Board:

  • Natalie Amiri, Radio and Television Journalist, ARD
  • Olaf Böhnke, Berlin Director, Alliance of Democracies
  • Christoph Bornschein, Founder and CEO, TLGG
  • Cathryn Clüver Ashbrook, Executive Director, The Future of Diplomacy Project, Harvard Kennedy School of Harvard University
  • Maria Exner, Deputy Editor-in-Chief, ZEIT ONLINE

In the run-up to the German Presidency of the Council of the EU in the second half of 2020, Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft is bringing together an interdisciplinary group of experts to systematically design possible futures for Europe in a scenario process. The special focus lies on the fundamental transformation of the public sphere in the digital age. This is examined in the context of Europe's digital sovereignty.

In three expert workshops between the end of March and the beginning of June 2020, we will develop a positive vision of Europe's digital public sphere and sovereignty in 2030 and then derive concrete policy recommendations for the present.
