The GovLabAustria creates an experimental space far from traditional bureaucracy to serve as a think tank fueling cross-organizational development and testing innovative processes and technologies in the public sector. The innovation laboratory, which is operated in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Public Service and Sport (BMöDS), aims to create the greatest possible benefit for society.

In May 2016, the GovLabAustria commenced its research and experimentation activities. Scientists from the Departments for E-Governance in Business and Administration and the Department for Knowledge and Communication Management of the Danube University Krems as well as experts from the Federal Ministry of Public Service and Sport (BMöDS) work within the laboratory.

To achieve these goals, close cooperation and networking with as many stakeholders as possible is necessary.
