What is this about?

The initiative METROPOLITAN CITIES embodies the vision of interconnecting and mobilizing all people of the fifth largest metropolitan region in Europe: Rhine-Ruhr. Numerous companies, research institutions and the public sector have joined forces to develop and promote innovations in the field of sustainable cities and mobility.

As annual highlight, the METROPOLITAN CITIES congress presents all continuous activities which pave the way for the application to the Olympic and Paralympic Games 2032 as Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region.

The inevitable transformation of mobility will have a considerable impact on people’s lives in the future. In cooperation with RWTH Aachen University and other renown Universities as well as the RWTH Aachen Campus, the METROPOLITAN CITIES congress will highlight exciting future issues of connected mobility and digitization. Creating a platform for pioneers from business, science and politics to discuss and solve the most pressing challenges facing metropolitan regions, the congress offers you the opportunity to participate directly and help shape the future of mobility.

Topics

METROPOLITAN CITIES has the vision to remove local innovation barriers and realize an economic and ecological future concept for a digitally connected and mobile region.

Through digital networking of people and companies, communities and digital ecosystems are driven forward. By integrating innovative companies and start-ups, the attractiveness of the region as a place to live and work will elevate. Digital and physical infrastructures form the foundation for the region. Essential requirements are an open and secure database of all relevant data (Regional Data Lake) and an infrastructure that enables the implementation of planned mobility concepts.
