GTAI was one of the official key partners of the Nordic Edge Expo & Conference 2020 and  hosted an online workshop to present best practices from German Smart City initiatives.

Various German experts from urban innovation networks, Smart City initiatives, Digital Innovation Hubs and financial services discussed and demonstrated how German cities cope with the increasing urban agglomerations and the new demands on housing, mobility, communications, climate neutrality or health. Our experts provided practical insights about market entry and the relevant support schemes and financing options.



Examples from numerous German cities and regions were streamed during the workshop - some highlights:

Berlin TXL – The Urban Tech Republic & Smart City Initiatives from Berlin

Belin Tegel Airport is closing to make room for Berlin to grow from 2021 on. Berlin TXL – the Urban Tech Republic will focus on six urban tech core themes: net-zero energy systems and efficient use of energy, environmentally friendly transportation, clean water, recycling, use of new materials for sustainable construction, networked control of systems.

Smart Village Bad Belzig & Hoher Fläming in Brandenburg

Smart Village is a cooperation between different actors, located one-hour south-east of Berlin. In its heart we find the lively city, Bad Belzig, anticipating on Mondial opportunities and regional heritage now creating a Health & Food cluster. The region is known as an excellent German experiment ground for new mobility, remote working opportunities eg Coconat and open government solutions.

Bauhaus.MobilityLab, Erfurt, Free State of Thuringia

The Bauhaus.MobilityLab is an interdisciplinary and experimental AI-innovation-project under the sign of the Weimar Bauhaus tradition and, through its openness to new approaches and solutions, aims to rethink the creation and testing of mobility, logistics and energy services.

Smart City logistics: The last mile – the Urban-BRE Project Rytle

The increasing inner city traffic generates noise, pollutes the environment and endangers health and demands more urgently than ever a fundamental urban traffic turnaround. The car-friendly city starts to outlive itself. The Bremen company RYTLE promises to revolutionize the antiquated work processes of the “last mile” with its multi-component concept!

And many more examples from other German Smart Cities like Munich, Darmstadt or Potsdam.

The workshop is part of the newly launched GTAI initiative „Smart Cities & Digital Transformation“ with the aim to promote the attractive development of German Smart City initiatives in various key sectors such as energy, digital economy, mobility, logistics, construction, security and health.
