The Fraunhofer "Morgenstadt Initiative" strives to think ahead, develop and test innovations for the city of tomorrow. In the digital event series, members and interested parties were given an insight into current developments, ongoing projects and the latest findings. Representatives from cities and industry had the opportunity to get to know the Morgenstadt network better. The event series was divided into different thematic workshops and keynote speeches, which could be attended independently of each other.
Within the digital event series, current issues regarding the future planning of cities were discussed. The presentations and workshops primarily addressed topics related to the digitalisation of municipalities, such as approaches to municipal data sovereignty or data-based approaches in urban data management, as well as current municipal challenges and "good practice" solutions within the sustainable and resilient planning and transformation of urban systems. In addition, various funding opportunities at national and European level (Horizon 2020) were presented and discussed with the participants.
With the digital event series "Morgenstadt - City of the Future", our experts offered the members of the Morgenstadt initiative and all interested parties a platform for exchange and networking on the latest findings, ongoing projects and funding programmes.
