More participation and agility in the development of the digital city: In the CityLab Berlin, urban society, administration and research come together to design and implement projects for the digitization of Berlin. The aim is to test agile methods for public administration and to develop needs-based smart city solutions for and with the citizens of Berlin. We received a grant from the Berlin Senate Chancellery for the construction and expansion.
The CityLAB is not a finished concept, but an experiment in itself that is continuously being developed.

Berlin named a smart city model project!
As part of the “Smart Cities Model Projects” programme, Berlin is developing a new, ambitious smart city strategy with a focus on participation, people and social good. The strategy intentionally takes a step away from a purely technological focus and moves instead toward a focus on co-design and inclusion; as part of this approach, the strategy includes active dialogue with Berlin’s diverse urban society.
The video gives an overview of the Berlin approach and the three-stage strategy process in which CityLAB is involved.
