    My name is Julia Rau and I work as an editor at Mercateo. As a trained journalist, I spent several years poking my nose into all kinds of things for daily newspapers and, among other things, wrote a series on digitalisation. My inexhaustible curiosity drives me time and time again towards all those topics for which the Federal Government has included a “4.0” in the title.
