Since 2013, the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom has increasingly dedicated itself to the topic area of the "Smart City", particularly on the municipal level.

The focus is on innovative ICT-based smart city concepts and solutions that can sustainably improve the quality of life of citizens, not only in urban areas, but also and especially in rural regions. "Smart City" is to be understood not as a goal, but as a process.

Furthermore, the Foundation pursues a deliberately regional approach, in which empirical values are communicated, discussed and implemented practically within the framework of initiatives via educational measures, cross-border networking and European dialogue measures.

The mapping study presented here is therefore not an isolated measure. Comparable studies are also available for Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia. And so here, too,the exchange of experience is of particular importance.


This mapping study is, first and foremost, an inventory of already implemented, initiated or planned smart city innovations and tools in local self-government units in Kosovo. In addition, it provides information on the extent to which smart city solutions have received greater attention or even an additional boost as a result of the COVID pandemic.
