SmarterCity Karlsruhe: Roadmapping new ideas based on a shared vision
At a symposium, the SmarterCity Karlsruhe initiative selected three projects that should be promoted up to 2025. At a one-day event, around 50 participants from business, research and active Karlsruhe networks discussed and evaluated the project ideas submitted from previous events and a survey conducted by Fraunhofer ISI, which supported the initiative conceptually. The results of the institute's survey, which registered about 30 project proposals, already indicated priorities in the areas of IT infrastructure, mobility/transport/traffic, locations for business, housing for the elderly, and social interaction as well as educational opportunities. The presented ideas were discussed and evaluated in terms of the criteria citizen benefits/municipal benefit, visionary/innovative character, mass appeal, sustainability and feasibility.
