Our Mission

The CityLAB is an experimental laboratory for the city of the future. Here, representatives from government, civil society, academia and start-ups collaboratively develop new ideas for how to both ensure and enhance the livability of Berlin as a city. The CityLAB combines elements of a digital workshop, a co-working space and event space into a single location where participation and innovation are jointly pursued. We see digitalization as an opportunity to re-think existing processes, dismantle social barriers and create new forms of civic participation.

The CityLAB is not a single, finalized concept. Rather, it's a dynamic experiment intended to be continuously developed and re-imagined.

Agile

We use agile methods and rapid prototyping to shorten the time from the initial idea to implementation and find solutions that meet users' needs.

Participatory

We work together in co-creation processes and offer a variety of opportunities for Berliners to get involved.

Open

We promote open data, software and standards and support the vision of "technological sovereignty" of cities.
