We proudly present the most successful digitalization projects of the “Smart Regions of Germany” contest of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy! Since nearly two years, HYVE successfully accompanies the Initiative of Smart Connectivity of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy, with their Open Innovation Platform . In frame of the digital agenda its aim is to support the digitization of Germany in the areas of education, health, traffic, government and energy.
