Berlin Smart City

Berlin Smart City

Berlin is not only one of the most attractive business hubs in Germany; it is also a laboratory for efficient infrastructure, informational networking, sustainable mobility, creativity and combining high productivity with high quality of life. Smart City is the integrated approach to all the future topics with which we, as a city, will be dealing with in the decades to come. It is about anticipating trends and developments in all areas that affect life in a big city. The idea is to use ICT to develop concrete solutions to make our city more efficient, healthier, more sustainable, more livable and cleaner. In addition to benefiting citizens, climate protection, resource conservation and sustainability are of particular importance. It is necessary to create an organizational framework and network decision-making processes in the cities in order to establish smart technologies. This includes production processes, services and technologies as well as infrastructures, which will be integrated, networked, mutually supported and implemented through the new “smart” information and communication technologies.In April 2015, the Berlin Senate decided on the Smart City Berlin Strategy. The objectives of the smart city strategy include expanding the international competitiveness of the Berlin-Brandenburg metropolitan region, increasing the resource efficiency and climate neutrality of Berlin by 2050, and creating a pilot market for innovative applications.
