Our Next Appointment is in Munich to address “Smart Solutions for the Cities of the Future”

This coming October 28, we will hold an International Innovation workshop in Munich on Technological Solutions for Smart Cities. We will share success stories and cooperate to identify these solutions, which will later allow us to tackle design and transformation challenges of the cities of the future. 

The demand for “smart” products and services, together with issues of accessibility for the citizenship, are boosting the development of a top-tier technological industry.

 In the session to be held in the German city of Munich this coming October 28, attendants will be able to hear two inspiring experiences for themselves; when their respective leaders will present them. On one hand, the city of Munich itself, and on the other, the municipality of Buenos Aires, which, with a population of over 13 million, will present its vision on how to advance in this direction in very large territorial contexts. The contrast between these two experiences will allow those participating to debate specific solutions for different realities, and identify collaborative work areas.

 The specific “Challenges” planned for the Work Session agenda are the following:

  - Street Lighting. How to use Sensors to develop New Citizen Services

    City of Munich, Dr Wolfgang Glock

  - Technological Solutions for transforming Urban Districts into Attractive Living Spaces for the Active Population

    Dr Carlos Pirovano, city of Buenos Aires

Sustainable places 2015

The third edition of the Sustainable Places conference, an original initiative from the RESILIENTand PERFORMER FP7 European project consortiums, will gather scientists, researchers and engineers, from research institutes and the industry, around one of the greatest challenges societies have ever faced: ensuring long-term environmental sustainability of ever-growing, densifying urban areas, in a resource-constrained world.

To tackle this issue, the event offers to question energy efficiency at building, district and city levels. To this end, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) along with other key research domains (energy, materials, methods and practices, etc) will be at the core of the conference.

As usual, the Sustainable Places 2015 will encourage networking and clustering among projects funded in the framework of the FP7 and H2020 EeB PPP. On this occasion, participants will have the opportunity to assess innovative initiatives, access up-to-date information, discuss market trends and envision possible synergies.

An attendance of around 200 participants, from Europe and other regions of the world, is expected.
