Information about urban renewal, new partnerships, climate and social goals of Vienna as a smart city.

‘Smarter Together’ is a major holistic smart city urban renewal project implemented together with Munich and Lyon. It is centred around the large-scale refurbishment of social/subsidized housing including innovative energy solutions, infrastructure, e-mobility, logistics and data management - all with a strong emphasis on citizen and stakeholder participation as well as exchanging best practice on governance topics.

The project demonstration area is located in Simmering, the south-eastern district of Vienna. The guided tour: the local adult educational centre VHS Simmering (SIMmobile, e-bike sharing), the secondary school NMS Enkplatz (zero-energy gym, solar bench, social dimension), housing association accommodation BWSG-Hauffgasse (energy, e-carsharing), municipal housing Lorystraße (participation).
