Dresden / Leipzig

Smart Systems & Smart Infrastructure

Smart cities, strong partners – the Digital Hubs in Dresden and Leipzig are working together to create the Internet of Things (IoT). Smart city dreams and Industry 4.0 are becoming reality here thanks to research into infrastructures and systems. Both locations create a central platform in the region for application-oriented solutions in key industries and ensure that exciting ideas are turned into innovative products.

Dresden and Leipzig have different areas of focus that complement one another: While the focus in Leipzig is on the development of smart infrastructure in the areas of energy, smart cities, e-health and cross-sectional technologies, the emphasis in Dresden is on the interaction of hardware, software and connectivity. The region thus benefits from the expertise of both cities as a visionary IoT location.
