On 2, 9 and 16 November the Smart City Digital
Business Event was organised. This event was
the road to Smart City Live, which was
organised as an online edition of the
Smart City Expo World Congress.
ITEA was very pleased to team up again with the
Nordics and the Netherlands to organise this business event that focussed on developing the
innovation system within Europe and connecting
people and organisations in an early stage of
developing solutions for city challenges.
With nearly 800 registrations coming from 65+
countries and over 40 workshops, this online
event proved to be a good substitute for the
physical event this year.
During this event, which was spread over three
Mondays, ITEA and its partners organised five
workshops focussed on Safety and Security in
the city, ITEA as a Smart City R&D&I platform, the
integration of IT developments in a Smart City and the City of the Future. Furthermore, project
leaders that are preparing a Smart City-related Project Outline
for ITEA 3 Call 7 had the chance to present their
project to further strengthen their consortia.
Next to workshops, participants had ample of
opportunity for online B2B matchmaking.
We thank all project partners, representatives
of the cities and Public Authorities for their
valuable contributions. Next year, we hope to
be able to join the Dutch and the Nordics again
in the organisation of a physical Smart City
Business Event, in Barcelona.
