MetaCity is a leap to a novel generation of smart city concept to accelerate the evolvement of digital and virtual city services and governance to the next level of the post-pandemic era, after the transition to virtual cooperation. The cornerstones of MetaCity are in the high-technology but strong focus of co-innovation is in the services.
Companies, cities, research institutes and citizens desire to develop new methods to co-innovate wherever they are located. MetaCity is environment for advanced inclusion, presence and contribution despite of physical location. MetaCity welcomes any size of company from any business sector and all individuals to boost openings of citizen science.
In MetaCity the cooperation is conducted intensively between researchers, developers and innovators together with operational city planning officials in the areas of various city functions like education&culture, energy transportation, health and properties.

What is in it for me?
You can be a big company, SME, start-up, spinn-off, community or individual. In the MetaCity you can find and compose ecosystems, learn from business verticals, cooperate with world-class researchers, find your customer, bring your idea, find resources, get sparring, apply for patents, pilot and scale innovations, get coaching of digital economy and much more.
How can I access it?
MetaCity is not shackled to physical locations, but coinnovation happens in continuously evolving network of MetaSpaces in which you can connect with your personal MetaBubble, which we encourage you to establish – now!
To maintain some of our existing senses or to pilot our super-senses we sometimes get together also physically in hybrid venues. Also then you can join physically or as avatar from any location.
Probably some day you want to visit the MetaCity physically. Some of most enthusiastic researchers, developers and innovators who arrived for a visit, decided to stay and settle down. They succeeded to achieve meta-physical presence.
Does it cost?
There is no entrance fee, payment or taxes to enter the MetaCity. But you are required to have wild imagination and openness for co-creation. With an eager attitude you may be tempted to fascinating projects.
Who to contact?
You can contact the Mayor of MetaCity to describe your motivation to become a partner or MetaCitizen. The Mayor guides you further.
