As already examined in the BCR I (March- May) and BCR II (June- September) projects, the digitalisation of the world of work is fundamentally changing the way we work together in teams and organisations. The degree of complexity of is increasing, but the number of taks increase and faster response times are required. Hybrid forms of work could be a core element of the public administrations' digital future. Nevertheless, there is little knowledge about how hybrid working can be designed and how it should be optimally designed. In order to fulfil the administration's claim to guarantee stability and at the same time enable innovation, the Federal Ministry for Arts, Culture, the Civil Service and Sport (BMKÖS), Section III/C/9 wants to systematically gather the available knowledge. The BMKÖS/Section III/C/9 envisages the establishment of a real-world laboratory within the framework of the project: "Future of Work" (FoW). This project addresses the central challenges and potentials of hybrid forms of work for the federal administration by conducting experiments on hybrid work under real-life conditions. In this way, BMKÖS/Section III/C/9 could take on a decisive and active leadership role in the context of the digitalisation of the Austrian administrative system.
