Hamburg is aiming for a leading role worldwide in the digitalisation of mobility with autonomously driving cars, apps showing free parking spaces and sharing concepts. Around 30 projects that develop intelligent transport systems are to be implemented by the 2021 ITS World Congress in Hamburg. The German government has approved EUR 11.5 in funding for three of these projects, the Ministry of Economics said Tuesday.
Meanwhile, two of Hamburg’s forward-looking projects are progressing: The M28 block in Speicherstadt has been handed over to tenants. Music studios, artists’ and creative studios are to be built on a 4,200 square metre area there in the coming weeks. Special emphasis will be on the Virtual Reality Head Quarter (VRHQ) with dedicated start-ups. The foundation stone for the Hamburg Innovation Port (HIP) was also laid Tuesday in Harburg’s inland port.
