Expertise in applied fundamental research, integrated strategies and integrated solutions by IGSI Network
Concept basis and starting point of the activities of IGSI is the principle of “human centred innovation“, which merges human needs, technical feasibility and economic viability to innovative solutions. Both, initial position and spatial and functional consequences of planning decisions, are consistently analysed and visualised. By this, results can be used as basis and for a transparent process of decision making.
Contemporary challenges of urban transformation processes – e.g. rapid urban growth, shortages in housing and infrastructure provision, demographical and social changes, digitalisation, climate change mitigation – require an intense collaboration of relevant stakeholders from governance, science, economy and citizens; from the first phase of needs assessment to the phases of implementation and operation.
IGSI recognises integrated planning as fundamental approach toward smart cities: Planning which connects infrastructure and spatial planning with socio-economic development and unlocks new potentials by a goal-oriented use of technological solutions.IGSI strongly focusses on the concept of “Urban Design Thinking“, a method and planning tool which sets citizens as user and main designer of urban spaces in the centre of development processes.
Dialogical events, called “UrbanLabs”, are crucial part of the collaborative process. Herein users, stakeholders and planners are jointly working together on specific problems and their solution.With our integrated approach, we are able to develop holistic solutions that are focusing on specific challenges of an urban setting.IGSI offers expertise in applied fundamental research, integrated approaches and profound knowledge of all relevant sectoral fields of a smart city. We are looking for an exchange of ideas with academia, planners, stakeholders and project developers for Indian smart cities.
