Vienna Geospace Hub

Satellite and Geodata for climate-neutral cities

Since October 2023, UIV Urban Innovation Vienna is operating the Vienna Geospace Hub innovation laboratory, which promotes the interconnection of geo and satellite data and their innovative application in administration. On behalf of the City of Vienna and supported by the FFG, Vienna Geospace Hub works with the aim of overcoming the challenges of climate change in cities and regions. This requires standardized and widely available data and models – such as those delivered daily from satellites as the European infrastructure.

In the innovation laboratory, this existing geodata is combined with AI models and new use cases are developed for it. The Vienna Geospace Hub creates an ecosystem in which the administration works together with science and companies to develop new products and services in order to create data-based foundations for climate adaptation measures and to achieve climate neutrality in 2040.

Vienna Geospace Hub serves as an experimental space in which users of satellite data from administration and business are networked with solution providers of satellite-based products and services. It creates a test environment in which innovative use cases for data-driven solutions can be demonstrated and developed for rollout.

UIV Urban Innovation Vienna is the host organization of the laboratory and contact point for interested companies, research institutions and administrative units that want to develop data-based, sustainable solutions for climate-neutral cities


City of Vienna



This project is funded by the FFG and the City of Vienna. The call “Technologies and innovations for the climate-neutral city” is part of the Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment and Energy’s RTI priority “Climate-neutral city”, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK). Processing is carried out on behalf of the BMK by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) together with Austria Wirtschaftsservice Gesellschaft mbH (AWS).
