'Digital City' competition: 'Digital summit' on 12th June 2017 in Walldorf

Heidelberg will carry on developing as a ‘digital city,’ even though – after making it to the final – it did not  win the national ‘Digital City’ competition run by the digital industry association Bitkom and the German Association of Towns and Municipalities (DStGB). Ultimately it was the city of Darmstadt that was crowned Germany’s ‘digital capital.’ This result was announced on Monday, June 12, 2017 during the German government’s ‘Digital Summit’ event.
