To manage the challenges of future urban growth, cities around the world get new opportunities arising from technological innovation.

In the context of this development the CityScienceLab researchs on the topics of participation / decision support, place finding, urban platform, urban mobility behaviour and e-culture. (More under Projects.)

The research projects are carried out in close cooperation with actors from science, politics, civil society and business. New tools and particular digital city models are an important part of the research work, which are used to visualize and simulate developments on the basis of urban data. (More under Tools.)

The overall aim is to support urban actors in decision-making processes. (More under Publications.)
