Data strategy for Berlin TXL presented

Tegel Projekt GmbH presented its data strategy for Berlin TXL today at the Smart Country Convention in Berlin. The aim of the document is to show the way to data excellence for Berlin’s largest urban development project in order to create digital applications based on up-to-date, correct and non-redundant data in the future and likewise to ensure the highest level of data security and data protection. Berlin TXL, one of the most ambitious smart city projects in Europe, is being built on the site of the former Berlin-Tegel airport. With the help of networked digital infrastructures, innovative forms of controlling the city, mobility, work and everyday life are to become possible in the Urban Tech Republic and the Schumacher Quarter. The data strategy presented today specifies strategic goals, responsibilities, processes and roles in dealing with data – both at the regulatory level (data governance) and the execution level (data management) and system level. The overarching goals include, among others, the systematic promotion of data-driven innovations, trust-building for digital processes or value-creating data monetisation. “With the completion of the data strategy, we have reached an important milestone in developing Berlin TXL into a smart and comfortable urban quarter, conserving resources and making urban living and business more sustainable,” says Dr Stefan Höffken, Head of Digitalisation at Tegel Projekt GmbH. “In addition, after a year of intensive cooperation with our development partners, we were also able to present the mission statement of the FUTR HUB as well as the first use cases. With this, we are taking important steps to bring the great potentials in the use of urban data into implementation.” Urban data from Berlin TXL will converge on the central FUTR HUB platform, where it will be analysed and made available for smart applications. To develop these applications, Tegel Projekt GmbH works collaboratively with development partners such as utilities, research and industry partners, organisations from Berlin’s smart city network, local residents, government agencies and civil society actors.
