Smart City Wien highly values education and considers itself a top-flight research location. Education smooths the path; research, technology and innovation yield new smart technical and social solutions and the economy finally implements those solutions and creates employment.

Objectives in the area Education:

  • Comprehensive provision of whole-day and integrated schools and further upgrading of high-quality childcare offerings.
  • Even after 2020, it will be important for Vienna to make sure that a maximum number of young people will continue their education beyond compulsory schooling and thus attain a higher educational level.
  • Even after 2020, it will be important for Vienna to safeguard positive frame conditions for acquiring formal school-leaving qualifications through second-chance education and for the recognition of educational attainments obtained abroad by adults.
