City of Tomorrow
The technology program "City of Tomorrow" aims at researching and developing new technologies and solutions for future cities and urban developments. The program follows an applied and demand-oriented approach and, with this mission orientation, can make an essential contribution to the modernization and resource efficiency of Austrian cities. These innovative solutions significantly increase the competitiveness of the domestic energy and environmental technology industry.
The focus of "City of Tomorrow" lies on the reduction of energy consumption and the use of renewable energies in buildings, neighborhoods and quarters, while at the same time increasing the attractiveness for residents and improving the economic efficiency.
