At the beginning of the year, we again increased our personnel. Sven Seeberg-Elverfeldt, who already held the technical management of the Integreat project from January to December 2016, is returning to his old place of work. After two years at the software company SUSE LINUX in Nuremberg, he now takes over the full-time role of Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Tür an Tür – Digitalfabrik and becomes Technical Director of the Integreat-App. The aim is to push forward innovations and functions in Integreat more purposefully and to further strengthen a sustainable and secure architecture for Integreat’s users and the participating communities with his know-how in the area of cyber and IT security. Welcome back Sven!
