Project Coordinators Smarter Together - City of Munich




Munich, Germany


Since 2016, Munich turned two of its neighbourhoods into a laboratory: over a bit more than 4 years, 20 million euros were invested in testing smart city solutions. That money came from the EU funded Smarter Together project. Today I chat with Bernhard Klassen and Verena Stoppel who both coordinated one after the other the Smarter Together Project – one of many innovative projects in Munich. Together with them, I will dive into this large-scale experimentation around energy, mobility, the role of big data and citizen participation and learn about their approach to urban renewal.
