Meral Akin-Hecke is the founder of DigiTalks, Austria
"Actually the digital progress facts of Austria are satisfying at first sight. On the other hand the population is growing old, people in the rural areas or in disadvantaged situations are lacking of the same access to the digital standards that are available in the other parts of Austria. My role among the Digital Champions will be first of all strengthening and linking the existing initiatives in Austria in order to recover the digital gap and set up new initiatives if necessary. I will try to be a bridge between EU Digital Agenda and the Austrian citizens. Mainly, I will focus on minimizing the digital gap and enabling more people gain digital skills."
