By using mobile applications, citizens can easily gain access to different services and open data. This offers new opportunities for the intelligent management of demand and can enhance the quality of life in cities. Mobile applications help citizen to access information and make informed decisions in various domains, such as:

  • energy control at home
  • multi-modal mobility
  • rental systems, etc.

Smarter Together Site Munich

The Munich lighthouse demonstration area within the SMARTER TOGETHER project is located at the western edge of the city, and includes both the large urban redevelopment area Neuaubing-Westkreuz and the flagship new development area Freiham, set to become a model of low-carbon development for up to 20 000 new residents and 7 500 new jobs. With the aid of cutting-edge technology and the intelligent use of data, Munich’s objectives are to cut CO2 emissions by more than 20 %, raise the use of renewable energy to above 20 % and increase energy efficiency by more than 20 %.

SmartEnCity Site Tartu

Often called the intellectual capital of Estonia, Tartu is a town of intellectuals, scientists, creatives and students, making it a hotbed for creative and scientific culture. Estonia’s most renowned university, the University of Tartu, hosts nearly 14 000 students, which makes up a good proportion of the whole population of the town – a total of 100 000. Also known as the city of good thoughts, Tartu already has a good track record as a smart city.
