About the organisers

"Research about and for public administration" has been the motto and remit of The German Research Institute for Public Administration (FÖV) since it was founded in 1976. It investigates public administrative bodies on all levels, from local entities through to the European and international spheres, and demonstrates possibilities for their further development and improvement. As a centre of competence that sets benchmarks within German, European and international research and consultation in the field of administrative sciences, the institute is unique in Germany. It is sustained by both federal and state governments.

The German University of Administrative Sciences Speyer offers the most excellent conditions and infrastructural facilities for postgraduate studies, research and continuing education in the context of Public Administration.

The Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung is a German political foundation affiliated with the German Green Party (Alliance 90/The Greens). Its primary task is political education and advocacy in Germany and abroad. Our main tenets are ecology and sustainability, democracy and human rights, non-violence and justice. As a think tank for green visions and ideas, we are part of an international network with 33 offices worldwide and with partner projects in more than 60 countries.

iRights.Lab is an independent Think Tank that develops strategies and practical solutions for positively shaping the changes in the digital world. We support public institutions, foundations, enterprises, research performing institutions and policy makers to master the challenges of digitalisation and to make the most of its many-layered potential. We bring in legal,technical, economic and socio-political expertise to bear on this work.
