iRights.Lab launch­es Inno­va­tion Office on behalf of the Ger­man Fed­er­al Min­istry of Fam­i­ly Affairs

The Inno­va­tion Office “Dig­i­tal Life” is tak­ing up its work online and offline. As the new think tank of the Fed­er­al Min­istry for Fam­i­ly Affairs, Senior Cit­i­zens, Women and Youth (BMFS­FJ), it bun­dles many projects and process­es.

It is an inno­va­tion dri­ver for the pos­i­tive shap­ing of digi­ti­sa­tion with­in and out­side the min­istry and sup­ports the devel­op­ment of a new, dig­i­tal social pol­i­cy.

The office is also an impor­tant inter­face between civil soci­ety and the pub­lic admin­is­tra­tion. Asso­ci­a­tions, ini­tia­tives, foun­da­tions, fam­i­lies, young and elder­ly, peo­ple of all ori­gins and sexes are the focus of social change. How digi­ti­sa­tion can help to improve the lives of all of us is the core task of the Inno­va­tion Office. The Fed­er­al Min­istry of Fam­i­ly Affairs has com­mis­sioned iRights.Lab to oper­ate the Inno­va­tion Office.

With the launch of the web­site, the Inno­va­tion Office is now also pre­sent­ing itself to the pub­lic and at you will find infor­ma­tion on a reg­u­lar basis on the­mat­ic focal points, cam­paigns and events.
