Within the Innovation Network Morgenstadt: City Insights, the Fraunhofer–Society and the City of Buenos Aires, together with UBATEC and the Province of Buenos Aires have launched an Innovation Partnership to maximize a sustainable development of Buenos Aires based on innovations and cross-sectoral action planning.
The Fraunhofer team is going to support Buenos Aires with its Buenos Aires Strategy 2030 (see picture).
Initiated through a joint workshop in March 2016 and deepened in further ongoing discussions, six ideas for potential innovation projects have been identified. All of these have the opportunity to contribute to a more sustainable and liveable City of Buenos Aires. They shall be brought towards implementation within a collective effort of Fraunhofer and the City of Buenos Aires. The purpose of this document is to show the state of development of the six project ideas and to keep track of the development process.
