March 2020 to August 2020
For Round 7, in addition to the four basic pillars of Civic Tech, Data Literacy, Data Security and Software Infrastructure, we have chosen an additional thematic focus:
Civic tech tools that enable better access to information and strengthen public discourse on the one hand – fear of bots and voter manipulation on the other: What is the role of trust in the interaction of society and technology and which measures and tools have a positive impact on trust building in the digital but also analog space?
