Development of a digital master plan for the city of Duisburg
The Chair of Information Systems and Strategic IT Management (SITM), in cooperation with the city of Duisburg and the Duisburger Versorgungs- und Verkehrsgesellschaft mbH (DVV), made a major contribution to the development of a concept for a ‘Masterplan Digitales Duisburg’ (masterplan for digital Duisburg). The concept describes the linking of citizens, businesses, social groups, politics, and administration through modern information and communication technology. It aims to create innovative digital applications to increase Duisburg citizens’ quality of life and the city’s economic attractiveness and sustainability. The identified fields of action are the expansion of the city’s broadband, economy, mobility, living, infrastructure, and administration.
The template for developing the Digital Masterplan was first read to the Duisburg city council on March 5, 2018. The council will decide whether to adopt the master plan within two months.
