Welcome to Smart City Basel

Smart City Basel uses digital technologies and data to secure the quality of life, to enable innovation and to foster a resource-efficient and sustainable development.

Smart City is an approach rather than a goal to itself: Technologies and data serve a sustainable development and are to be used in the interest of the people in Basel. As a smart city, Basel is creating tomorrow together.
