Solutions for the cities of the future
According to the United Nations (UN), in 2030 over 60 percent of the world’s population will live in cities – and the number is constantly increasing. Urbanization is a mega trend that means big challenges and big opportunities both for people and the environment. Innovative concepts for the cities of the future represent a major future market.
Fraunhofer IAO understands cities as complex and holistic systems. Urban processes are becoming increasingly connected and tightly interwoven – not least due to digitization.
Together with forward-looking stakeholders, Fraunhofer IAO develops system innovations that range from city-wide transformation processes and new home and work concepts to solutions that address mobility, urban governance and demographic change. The aim is to realize a sustainable, resilient city of the future designed for the benefit of the people living in it.
