SIGNIFICANT EVENTS

 

Panels

Public-private partnerships are fundamental to create suitable opportunities for the development of Smart Cities. Network connectivity, smart capabilities, data resiliency and security, energy efficiency are the key elements for successful experiences in this area. Academic or industrial workshops aim at collecting concrete use cases and successful Smart City scenarios, leveraging ICT infrastructures as the enabling element for their sustainability. Contributions from universities, research centers, public and private firms are equally welcomed.

 

Smart City Challenges and Needs

According to the European Commission, Smart Cities represent an opportunity for Europe and ICT infrastructures are the backbone upon which citizens and business have to rely for empowering their lives, fueling the economic growth, tackling global changes. Some cities have already experienced a smart approach within their urban frameworks and many more are starting this complex yet fascinating path nowadays. The aim of the roundtable is to let cities present their current activities and the challenges they envision in their near future in order to highlight how Smart City solutions can be financially viable, sufficiently safe, effectively integrated, efficiently automated
