The structure presented here and the underlying objectives follow the resolution of the Smart City Wien Framework Strategy 2014. The adaptation to the updated version of the Smart City Wien Framework Strategy will follow shortly.

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.
