Smart City Agency
On behalf of the city, the Smart City Agency, established at Urban Innovation Vienna, coordinates the diverse activities surrounding the initiative and the Smart City Wien framework strategy. Furthermore, it perceives international tasks within this field of expertise, such as relaying smart Best Practice examples, as well as exchanging know-how between relevant players, and brings current European and international subjects and discussions to Vienna.
Versatile communication – both offline and online – on themes within the broad spectrum of the Smart City initiative represents an important task area. This website and various social media channels for instance provide up-to-date information about related subjects. The team of the Smart City Agency also is a first point of contact for those interested in the matter.
Addionally, the Smart City Agency is the coordination centre of DigitalCity.Wien, an initiative jointly promoted by the private sector and city administration, with the objective of transforming Vienna into a leading digital “hotspots” in Europe and positioning it as such both internally and externally. The initiative was developed from a discussion on possible solutions to shortages in the Vienna’s IT workforce which was held in 2013, and subsequently expanded into a much broader project.
