Dresden on its way to becoming one of Europe’s leading Smart Cities
Within the European Smart City project "MAtchUP "*, Dresden will transform into a Smart City over the next few years. During the implementation process until 2022, the city - alongside Valencia (Spain) and Antalia (Turkey) - will be established as a so-called Lighthouse-City (pioneering city). The development concepts for a "Smart City" that were developed during the project period serve as models for the imitators, general followers cities Skopje (Dresden's twin city in Macedonia), Herzlia (Israel), Ostend (Belgium) and Kerava (Finland).
A Smart City combines human life with intelligent technologies to create more efficient, sustainable, cleaner and future-proof living spaces for citizens to meet the challenges of climate change. MAtchUP focuses in particular on energy efficiency, digitisation, electromobility and renewable energies.
This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program under Grant Agreement No. 774477.
