When something becomes official, what you have been working on for so long feels far more real and binding. The Saxon Minister of State for Social Affairs and Consumer Protection, Barbara Klepsch, invited us to the official handover of the funding notification. In addition to a warm welcome, we were also able to sense a great deal of empathy and understanding for the fundamental issue of “reconciling family and career”. The high level of interest in innovative, but especially user-centered solutions on the part of the minister was impressive.
It was clear: Saxony really wants to help the citizens of Saxony here. After the official reception of the funding decision, we had the opportunity to present the current state of affairs of our project. We can say, not without pride, that the impression of how far we have already come was clearly noticeable. Due to our commitment also already in the last months we can roll out in short a first free software version and besides already report progress over the project website familie-und-beruf.online. We are pleased about the fact that one has our work constantly in the view.
