The digital pact for schools is coming!

With the DigitalPakt Schule, federal and state governments want to ensure better equipment for schools with digital technology. To achieve this goal, the federal and state governments have signed the administrative agreement for the digital pact. The Digital Pact will start on May 17, 2019. Previously, the Bundestag and the Bundesrat changed Article 104c of the Basic Law, thereby creating the constitutional basis for the DigitalPakt Schule. The new regulation has been in force since 4 April 2019. The digital pact will be financed by the Digital Infrastructure Fund, a so-called special fund, which was set up at the end of 2018.

Here you will find all the relevant information about the Digital Pact and your opportunities to participate as a school.
