Reimagining Berlin as a Smart City

TU Berlin Summer & Winter University
Campus Full time July 2017 Germany Berlin

Students with an interdisciplinary interest in urban planning, innovation and knowledge management, digital media & communications technologies, civic tech / engineering, sustainability studies, politics & governance, history. [+]

Course Studies in Industrial Design in Europe 2017. Summer University block 3: July 24th - August 17th, 2017 Course price: 1.850 Euros 18 hours of class sessions per week, 5 ECTS credit points Topic Berlin is growing. By the year 2030, there will be 250,000 more people living in the city than there are today. This will bring with it an increase in the demand for housing as well as in requirements for mobility, the adaptation of infrastructures and the availability of resources such as water, energy, data and building land. Like many major urban centres around the world, this means that Berlin is also facing a wide variety of challenges for the future: the growing city, the aging city or the city in the midst of structural change all require inter-disciplinary and inter-departmental approaches if solutions are to be found. The Smart City approach aims to find solutions to the ecological, social, economic and cultural challenges faced by Berlin through the use of intelligent technology. Berlin wishes to preserve – and as far as possible enhance – its appeal and its quality of life. (Excerpt from the „Smart City Strategy Berlin”, 2015) Target group Students with an interdisciplinary interest in urban planning, innovation and knowledge management, digital media & communications technologies, civic tech / engineering, sustainability studies, politics & governance, history. Learning Goal/Output Gain an insight into the complex and often conflicting landscape of actors in Berlin working in the cross-cutting field of smart city Learn about the chronology of Berlin’s official smart city policy, the city’s plans and activities Visit some of Berlin’s future sites of innovation where the action happens! Get to know Berlin’s lighthouse smart city projects, including many which involve cutting-edge research and leadership from TU Berlin (such as the E-Bus project, the new 10-point Be.Digital-Agenda and the CHORA-BrainBox) Learn about Berlin’s unique history and how this resulted in today’s opportunities as well as challenges for a digital and sustainable transformation Compare and contrast how Berlin’s Smart City activities differ from those in other cities around the world Critically reflect on the “smart city” concept beyond the narrow definition of ICT providers, but rather understand it as a broad cultural transformation that requires us to reinvent how we manage and govern our cities Get a general understanding of the impact of rapid urbanization on our planet and the role it plays for achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals Contribute insights and experiences from your home city and appreciate the mechanism of city-to-city learning as a key driver for a sustainable “urban age” Introduction to lean innovation and design thinking methodologies as part of the Team Design Challenge Course Components Lectures Group work and class presentations Talks and Q&A with external guests (depends on availability) Field visits to selected smart city projects and innovation sites (e.g. E-Bus, EUREF-Campus, Südkreuz station) Team Design Challenge – develop your own smart city solution to one of Berlin’s existing problems. Short Description “The 19th century was a century of empires, the 20th century was a century of nation states. The 21st century will be a century of cities.” – Former Denver Mayor W. Webb. Like many cities around the world, Berlin wants to become a leading Smart City by 2030. But what does that mean? How can new technologies help to tackle some of Berlin’s biggest challenges? And what can Berlin learn from other cities? In this course you will get a unique insight into Berlin’s history and ambitions as a smart city. We will trace the development of Berlin’s official smart city agenda, appreciate the diverse landscape of actors who lead the change and visit some of the city’s most celebrated smart city projects and innovation hotspots first-hand. This course will challenge you to critically reflect and interrogate the “smart city” concept, contribute your own ideas and experiences from home and gain a broad perspective on how cities are innovating and cooperating all over the world for a more sustainable urban future. Prerequisites The general prerequisites of the TU Berlin Summer University are: at least one year of university experience. This course prefers C1 level English to fully participate in discussions. Lecturer(s) Jonas Schorr (MA/MSc) is a strategic and digital communications professional in the fields of international city cooperation and smart cities. For the last three years, he has been an active part of Berlin’s emerging Smart City scene through his work as a research fellow at TU Berlin. He also works for the Policy Transfer Platform, an innovative knowledge exchange platform for city experts which he coordinates on behalf of Berlin’s Senate Department for Urban Development and the Environment and the Metropolis city network. Prior to this, Jonas completed a traineeship at the European Commission (DG Environment) in Brussels and worked at the London School of Economics’ urban research centre LSE Cities and the Urban Age Programme. He occasionally writes for online publications and think tanks on governance and digital innovation issues in cities. In 2014, he was a jury member for the World Mayor Prize.
