Key topics: 

- Presenting the results of Smart Urbana project experiments in 5 small and medium-size  cities of Greece, Moldova, Portugal, Romania and Spain in 2017 implementing 2 use cases (1) supporting of city governance accordingly to recommendations of international standard ISO 37120 and (2) Air quality monitoring for critical health issues

- Overview of achievements of Vienna municipality and leading small and medium municipalities in different European countries in digital transformation of big data about urban processes into custom information services and business models for urban communities 

- First-hand information about new international standards for Smart Cities and Communities developed by International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and its practical applications

- First-hand information about the latest Smart City Monitor updates, new features and applications  

- Meeting platform for setting new consortiums and Smart City clusters for projects in 2018 financed by existing European Union instruments Horizon 2020, Interreg and Structural Funds

The detailed event program is here   

The program includes presentations by several medium and small size European municipalities having practical results in their Smart City projects, including the partners of Smart Urbana project and Nordic-Baltic solutions, and provide demonstrations of new developments of Smart City Monitor technology as cutting-edge artificial intelligence platform.

It is known that, in the best-case scenario, Smart City should be realised as an interconnected system of systems integrating many data sources, silos, isolated automated systems, sensors, IoT and actuators deployed all over the city and sharing data sources across municipalities’ departments and city agencies and making daily life more productive. However in the real-world such scenario is still very rare especially in small and medium-sized cities still having a little number of data sources including databases and sensors and variety of fragmented technologies and solutions operating in silos.

Join us to explore and discuss how some pioneering cities across the Europe address these complex issues by implementing their Smart City and IoT projects and data-driven decision-making in daily work of their municipalities and utility providers improving the lives of citizens and creating smart sustainable ecosystems. We look for practical solutions and answers to existing problems!

Why could the workshop be interesting for you:

1. It presents the latest ongoing activities and practical achievements in several cities from different European countries sharing experiences and lessons to learn from municipalities and service providers.

2. Smart Urbana project municipalities from 4 countries will demonstrate novel their use cases supported by Smart City Monitor instances running in their cites.

3. Participants will receive an overview of latest international standards “Sustainable development of communities” supporting Smart Governance and Management by its developers from International Organization for Standardization - ISO Technical Committee 268.

4. Novel applications of Smart City Monitor will demonstrate its use for integrated holistic management of metropolitan areas and transparency of governance for citizens accordingly to the ISO standards as well as the rich set of options eliminating non-productive manual data processing tasks in municipalities.

5. Participants will discuss new Horizon 2020, Interreg, Structural funds and other innovative projects for 2018 meet in person, get ready to collaborate and share ideas for setting new project consortiums.

During this second Vienna workshop “Smart Cities in Practice” the organizers aim at making the event practical and valuable for participants facilitating sharing of expertise and knowledge that foster effective distribution of relevant innovations with minimum risks and costs.
