Consumer Affairs at ZD.B

In the name of the Bavarian government the Center Digitisation.Bavaria (ZD.B) perfoms a bundling function for already existing activities in the areas of digitisation and develops them further in a sustainable manner.

With its business office in Garching the Center Digitisation.Bavaria acts as a coordinator for numerous actions. They especially include

  • Thematic platforms: Networking between companies and scientists concerning key themes of digitisation
  • Junior Research Groups: Encouragement of scientific junior researchers in the thematic fields relevant for digitisation
  • Innovation labs: Bringing together companies and students in order to work at innovative prototypes

The office for Consumer Affairs of the ZD.B has the goal of implementing solutions to consumer issues right into the process of digital transformation.

Working with companies, research organisations and consumer organisations, we will identify and anticipate consumer issues. Those issues will then be tackled together with companies, and incorporated into political frameworks.

A key topic currently is „Privacy by Design“, where we help companies to understand the requirements of the Data Protection regulation, and provide best-practice examples to technically implement it.
