Engineering for Smart Cities

The particular significance of cities as a place to live is highlighted by the fact that, as of the beginning of the 21st century, more than half of the world's population now live in cities. This means that urban technologies and green development present particular opportunities and challenges for research and industry that promise to allow us to gain new knowledge and develop strategies for future markets.

Through its partnership with FAU and THN, research at the NCT is closely connected to two universities in Northern Bavaria and benefits from established research structures and specialist expertise as well as strong networks to other research institutions in the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region. FAU and THN represent all relevant scientific and technical disciplines and offer many different degree and professional development programmes.

Research at the NCT deals with five distinct research areas that include collaboration between researchers at FAU and THN.
