The City of Sarajevo and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have officially launched the City Mind Lab, the goal of which is to gather our prominent and inspirational citizens, experts from different fields, in the City Hall today.
This group should make inovations and suggestions for innovative ideas and solutions that would make the core for the implementation of the project „Sarajevo Smart City“.
Sarajevo has been a place of innovations and progress for centuries. The establishment of this body will open the possibility for Sarajevo to activate the enormous potential it possesses.
The current City Administration has, from the beginning of its mandate, started and implemented many important city projects. The „Smart Sarajevo“ initiative is one of its priorities, and its implementation will enable Sarajevo to develop best solutions with the goal of improving the equality of life of the citizens of the capital city.
Through this initiative the City of Sarajevo wants not just to reach European trends but to become the leader of those processes in the region and beyond.
The goal of the pilot initiative financed by UNDP is to open up the dialogue between citizens, govrenment officials, the academic community and the private sector about the future development of smart Sarajevo and test innovative solutions for digital town planning, upgrading of public services through the application of new technologies, as well as the so-called „smart“ urban business.
