Since the founding years of the Digital Opportunities Foundation in 2002, its mission has been to research the societal consequences of digitization, to advocate equal access for all people and to strengthen their media skills. The goal is to promote the digital inclusion of all societal groups and to counteract an impending digital divide. The Digital Opportunities Foundation is working under the patronage of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy, as of the Federal Ministry of Family, Seniors, Women and Youth.

The internet offers opportunities for more information, more participation and social engagement. We want to lay the groundwork, that allows all people to participate and actively help create the digital society. The main goal of the Digital Opportunities Foundation is digital inclusion – for which we work in the thematic areas

– Promotion of media literacy
– Online-safety
– Usability / Accessibility
