Morgenstadt is a Fraunhofer Initiative to accelerate the sustainable development of cities. We structure complexity, design solutions and implement!
Facilitated by the German Fraunhofer-Society, the Innovation Network »Morgenstadt: City Insights« (m:ci) is comprised of high-level first movers already working in the field of urban sustainability in Europe and around the world. Using leading-edge innovation management methodologies, m:ci aims to develop and implement socio-technical innovations for the city of the future. »Morgenstadt: City Insights« focuses on the interplay of technologies, business models, and governance approaches for sustainable urban development. The fundamental goal of the network is to accelerate development that helps reduce energy and resource consumption while also enhancing the liveability and prosperity of a city.Phase II of »Morgenstadt: City Insights« seamless transitions from a research focus (phase I: 2012-2013) to an application focus (Phase II: launching 2014) With input from the Phase I research, m:ci Innovation Network partners and allies will develop and adapt new technology concepts and creative solution strategies to real-life project requirements. Concepts will be tested in multiple pilot projects for practicability and feasibility and brought to scale as appropriate. In order to achieve these ambitious goals, m:ci emphasizes the connection between applied research and strategic business. In order to operationalize phase II, m:ci has defined five modules (see 4.2. project structure and working streams). The core focus of Phase II will be a collaborative strategic engagement with a minimum of three cities (in Germany, Europe, and at least one other another region). where development trajectories until the year 2030 will be researched and validated and future requirements for action will be targeted. In tight collaboration with the respective cities, business/industry partners and Fraunhofer institutes will develop strategic solutions for innovation with our holistic systems approach (»Morgenstadt Model for Sustainable Urban Development«) and will screen opportunities for implementation projects.
