Knowledge is Power

And DAN wants to empower you

With DAN's motto being connect.transform.create, we are aware of the fact that the major driver of change is knowledge. If we see digitalization as the chance to generate better solutions in all areas of our lives that everyone can benefit from, we also have to make sure that everyone is on board. Not all of us are digital nomads or technically affine, yet we cannot avoid that digitalization is increasingly affecting us. Even more, it forces us to constantly learn and think beyond the hitherto imagineable. Getting digitally educated in a rapidly changing and highly dynamic environment is definitely a challenge.

This is why we would like to share with you the knowledge we are gathering from within the DAN community. A big thank you to all the experts who make this possible! From a Glossary of Digital Terms to a Concept on how to Realize a Successful Virtual Hackathon or a deep-dive into The Role of Museums in the Digital Age … enjoy the read!
