Users view on Smart cities

People living and working in a Smart City have manifold life contexts, needs and claims. Technology affinity and skills differ among diverse groups of people. What are the needs and requirements diverse people and groups of people have towards a Smart City? How can representatives and decision makers of Smart Cities react to these? How can ICT-based solutions for Smart Cities be adapted to various users’ needs and requirements?

Research and Innovation for the city of tomorrow

Which kind of research results do stakeholders in praxis need in order that an urban transition is likely to take place? Representatives of the Austrian research programme “City of Tomorrow”, the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe and the EU project SEiSMiC  will address this question in the framework of this session. In addition possible themes for a planned call of the JPI Urban Europe on innovative solutions for cities will be discussed.

Aspern Seestadt is not only one of the largest urban development projects in Europe, it also houses one of the largest Smart Cities projects in Austria.

The research project Smart Cities Demo Aspern is concerned with the optimisation of urban energy generation and consumption whilst reducing CO2 emissions at the same time. The recently opened demo centre demonstrates today what the urban future of energy will bring tomorrow.


The H2020 project „Smarter together“ is recently implementing a holistic transformation process to one part of the district of Simmering. This includes not only social housing refurbishment, but also new mobility approaches and participatory processes.



The ‘Plus-Energie-Bürohochhaus’ (Plus-Energy Office High-Rise Building) is the world‘s first office tower that can claim to feed more energy into the power grid than is required to operate AND use the building. The integral building concept demonstrates one thing in particular: that plus-energy office buildings are not only technically possible, but are also, above all, economically feasible concepts for the future of working on and in buildings.
