Financed by the federal government in Germany, Bremen Online Services aims to develop and implement e-government and provide security for transactions and payments by developing a secure platform. Through a public-private partnership, the Hanseatic Free City of Bremen is carrying out the project together with regional and national partners from private industry. The objective is to provide public and private services through a secure, common platform, thus favouring a one-stop approach through the Internet. The success of this project is particularly due to an interdisciplinary problem-solving approach that brings publicly and privately managed firms together at the same table as full partners. The project was one of the three winners of the federal German MEDIA@KOMM competition.
