Annette Hoffmann, called Anna, is a research assistant in the LandStarK project. Before that, she researched regional transformation processes in different university contexts with a focus on Digitalisation 4.0 and the implementation potentials of the SDGs. In addition to her academic work, she is active in state economic development programmes for the digital and agile transformation of SMEs, predominantly for the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs. In Kassel, she obtained her diploma in liberal arts with a focus on “multimedia” at the chair of Harry Kramer in the 1990s. Her field of work was then for many years in the Netherlands with her own agency at the interface of software architecture, e-learning, coding and UX design. Together with the University of Hamburg and the University of Dortmund, she realised award-winning software series for mathematics didactics at the end of the 1990s and in the 1990s.
