Many excellent research institutes and think tanks already contribute to the fields of foreign policy, economic policy or environmental policy in Germany. Issues related to new technologies however lack comparable expert organisations that focus on current politics and social debates. The Stiftung Neue Verantwortung (SNV) wants to fill this gap in the landscape of German institutes and think tanks. This think tank seeks to provide a focal point for all people whose work covers current political and social questions of the cross-sectional issue of digitalization. We compile and publish analyses, develop recommendations for action for policymakers, conduct expert workshops, invite experts to engage in publicly accessible policy debates, and explain contexts and backgrounds in the media.
