Projects Adlershof - A² Programme Berlin - Current Programme Smart City 2019

Smart cities, smart buildings, smart construction: opportunities of digital change

Like many other large cities in the world, Berlin faces great challenges: the city is growing, becoming more densely populated and has an ageing population. Berlin is undergoing profound structural changes. The city of the future will be an intelligent city – a smart city. Smart technology will play a major part in confronting the ecological, social, economic and cultural challenges of growing metropolitan areas and in finding comprehensive, interdisciplinary solutions.

Our A² programme  wants to make a start where future innovation is visible today: energy, smart buildings, communication, IT and security. The Science and Technology Park Berlin Adlershof offers start-ups the unique opportunity to test LPWAN-based applications together with our programme’s industrial partners. Berlin Adlershof boasts its own water, wastewater, gas and electricity grid, which is an ideal “micro-urban laboratory” for testing smart city applications. The focus will be on sensor technology.
