Munich Urban Colab Eingang

Our goal is to develop sustainable solutions for urban challenges and to create a livable City of the Future – on the cutting edge and in the heart of Munich. Join us in shaping the future of our cities, in the midst of a strong and innovative community!

UnternehmerTUM and the City of Munich are offering a place for new forms of cross-sector and interdisciplinary collaboration: the Munich Urban Colab.

At the Munich Urban Colab, start-ups, established companies, voices from science, fresh talent and the City of Munich are developing and testing innovative concepts together with citizens. It’s how Munich can become an international front-runner in developing smart city solutions.

Colab Quarterly - The Magazine for the City of the Future

Colab Quarterly 02 Website

A unique, innovative community has emerged in the Munich Urban Colab: Established companies, start-ups, initiatives, scientists, the city administration and citizens are working together on solutions for the city of the future.

We present these exciting projects and the people behind them in our magazine Colab Quarterly. Four times a year, we feature current topics and ideas for the city of tomorrow in a journalistically varied, informative and entertaining way.

"Rethinking Creative City" - this is the focus of the current issue.
After all, creativity and overcoming outdated thought patterns are central to the economy and growth of a city. What can you expect in the magazine?

We interviewed Clemens Baumgärtner, Head of the Department of Labor and Economic Affairs, who explained why the exchange with creative people - and also the cultural offerings - are so important for Munich as an economic location.

Good ideas need space: We present the MakerSpace, which offers ideal conditions for developing and realizing good ideas. Florian Küster gave us a tour through the unique high-tech workshop.

In an interview, the artistic director of Haus der Kunst, Andrea Lissoni, revealed to us why he perceives the state capital quite differently than many Munich skeptics - and how he wants to reposition Haus der Kunst in the future.

You can find more exciting stories about the Creative City in the Colab Quarterly - enjoy reading!
