Smart Cities. German High Technology for the Cities of the Future

4. Mai 2011


The present publication approaches the "Smart City" topic from the perspective of technology policy. The topic is embedded in other acatech activities, like the Smart Cities workshop conducted in Bangalore on 12 November 2010 as part of the German Indian Partnership for IT-Systems (GRIP-IT) project. The objective of this acatech publication is to provide an approach for strategic forecasting and planning of political action.

Recommendations will mainly focus on the tasks of the sovereign state that cannot be assumed by the market. For Germany as a business location, the topic of smart cities is relevant for two reasons: Germany is both a leading market and a leading provider of smart city technologies and know-how. Considering the European and global demand of smart technologies, we are facing the task of establishing Germany as a leading provider of innovative overall solutions.
