MUF Experimental Labs (beginning 3 July 2017) is a conceptually new format for this year's 7th Moscow Urban Forum, that takes as its focus global metropolitan area research. These include three research workshops on Future Urban Mobility, the Future of Comfort Housing, and the Quality of Urban Environment that use the Forum as a platform to unite for the first time ever experts in urban environment development, representatives of relevant Moscow Government departments, designers of innovative technological solutions and services, investors and international curators.
From 3-6 July 2017, participating teams will work together on concepts for city projects designed as widely available and scalable technological solutions for specific municipal needs and problems, as defined by the Moscow Government. The best projects will be presented to the jury consisting of deputy mayors, department heads and major Russian and international experts during the closing session of the MUF17 business programme.
"The experience of the leading global megacities suggests the importance of the open tech development agenda for Moscow's future. Moscow is poised to become a city open to new technologies aimed at improving living standards using the latest tech solutions. These should become available to all citizens in their everyday lives," says Evgeny Kuznetsov, Director of the subsidiary funds of JSC RVC and the Experimental Labs Programme Director.
