Award set up by the Foundation

The “Lebendige Stadt” Foundation presents a Foundation Award each year in recognition of innovative civic projects such as particularly outstanding cultural and civic marketing events, successful city displays comprising elements such as light, sound and water (as temporary or permanent installations), and projects in the field of building conservation and tourism, especially if these are of cultural or artistic value.

Foundation Award 2018

The Most Digital City

The award is open to towns and municipalities who pursue a strategy of digitisation as a cross-functional task and who have already realised projects within the context of this strategy.


The Foundation is looking for best practice projects that can serve as models for other towns and municipalities in areas such as eGovernment, mobility, healthcare or education and that represent milestones on the road to the digital city. Digitisation and interconnection are, after all, the preconditions for the future viability of towns and municipalities.


The award carries a total cash prize of 15,000 euros.
