About Uve’s Talk
Uve and Michael will talk about the Hamburg Iniciative Digital Hanse as Digitalization puts many proven solutions and concepts in business and society to the test. Hamburg as a trading location is particularly affected. The aim is to use the opportunities offered by digitization to develop solutions for the future that will be understood and supported by companies and all citizens through trust. That is the characteristic of the blockchain. Together the iniciative wants to develop and implement one or more prototypes for the idea “Digital Hanse” very quickly.
