Linz as the digital heart of the entire region
"Digital Linz" is a strategic initiative commissioned by Mayor Klaus Luger to take further digitalisation steps for the citizens in a targeted manner and in cooperation with research and business. Through digitalisation and impactful projects, the City of Linz aims to remain a future-ready work and living space. "Artificial Intelligence" plays a central role in this endeavour.
A core team of municipal experts coordinated the development of the programme, which was approved by the Linz City Council on 4 March 2021. Since then, continuous work has been carried out on the implementation projects, and an annual report is drawn up.
City Administration Director Mag.a Ulrike Huemer is part of the core team and oversees the formats and content of the initiative. A "Digital Board," consisting of specialists from various fields, provides valuable professional insights.
