City of Tomorrow puts emphasis on the built infrastructure in connection with urban energy systems, both on a district-level and within the wider agglomeration (suburban areas).

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. Thematically, the program is focused on three topics: (1) digital planning, building and operating, (2) plus-energy districts and (3) innovative greening technologies.

"City of Tomorrow" strives for the FTI-political objectives

  • Sustainable energy system
  • reduction of climate impact
  • Increase competitiveness
  • Increase of R&D quality

This makes it an important contribution to the implementation of the national climate and energy strategy.
