Smart and Sustainable Cities

The Research Unit of the FGES

Smart and Sustainable Cities (SSC) relies primarily on studies about and within the city but sometimes it goes beyond these boundaries when it comes to understanding how the city feeds itself, for example.

Our goal is to better understand how societal changes are taking place due to the development of new technologies and the ubiquity of digital technology.

Our research unit is helping to improve our knowledge of transition processes from different perspectives.
