The partner cities Hamburg, Leipzig and Munich
Hamburg, Leipzig and Munich have already gained extensive experience with their own digitalisation and Smart City strategies. The cross-city partnership that the three cities are entering into with the CUT project is unique in Germany. The intensive knowledge transfer between the cities offers a great opportunity, one that exemplifies the model character of CUT: As part of the CUT project, solutions are created that reach beyond the perspectives of any individual city, and thus can yield new ways of doing things to other cities and municipalities in Germany.
The CUT project is receiving 21 million euros in federal funding under the 2nd funding call of the Federal Ministry of Housing, Urban Development and Building (BMWSB), and this is supplemented by around 11 million euros from the three partner cities. The funding for the model projects is provided through the Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW). The project is supported by the Coordination and Transfer Office for Model Projects Smart Cities (KTS), which promotes networking and the exchange of experience among the model projects.
