Smart City Dresden

As one of Europe's leading high-tech locations, Dresden is working with many partners to develop and test the latest technologies for future-oriented urban development (e.g., in the MAtchUP project) in order to meet current and future challenges such as demographic change, climate protection, energy transition and environmentally compatible mobility. The city wants to move into the future as a smart city at the cutting edge of technology.

More than almost any other region in Europe, Dresden has the technological foundations for a Smart City in the form of the Silicon Saxony cluster: highly innovative micro/nanoelectronics and software. The IT and software industry is now the largest generator of new jobs in Dresden.

Dresden's research and business players have been global pacemakers for smart city solutions in many areas for years, such as mobile communications technologies or sensor systems.

By 2026, the city administration and municipal enterprises, together with partners, want to implement nine concrete model projects in the districts of Prohlis, Johannstadt and Friedrichstadt. The vision: to use the opportunities offered by digitization to take a more experimental approach to urban development and to involve residents and Dresden's businesses more closely. The goal is to create a climate-neutral and socially just Dresden.

The projects in the Smart Cities model project are to be funded by the German Federal Ministry of Housing, Urban Development and Construction and the project executing agency Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW).
