SMART CITY FORUM
Smart City Forum is the most important congress in Poland devoted to the functioning and development of smart cities. It is a response to the transformation that is taking place on a global scale, concerning the construction and functioning of modern cities or entire regions. Experts from industries such as transport, construction, energy or data science together with decision-makers of government and local government administration from the national level will meet in a joint debate on the future of smart cities, which makes the Smart City Forum by far the most important initiative in Poland devoted to smart cities on such a scale and with such substantive facilities. In each of our forums, we present innovative solutions and answers to problems that work both in Poland and around the world.
The substantive aspect of the meeting is the result of the work of the Program Council under the Honorary Chairmanship of the Mayor of Wrocław, Jacek Sutryk, and Maciej Bluj, an expert in the field of Smart City solutions.
The spring edition of the congress will be unique – it will be time to sum up how we coped in times of the most significant economic and energy crisis. Together, in Wrocław, we have reviewed the solutions and strategies for the cities and their inhabitants. On this basis, we can define good practices for the future. The main points of interest for the incoming edition of the Smart City Forum will be, among others, the educational aspects in terms of innovations and the use of open data for the development planning of the cities. During the City Mayors and Administration’s Summit, we will talk about the economic situation from the local governments’ perspective and speak of the challenges facing the SC concept in the nearest future. Each local government official is aware of technology’s influence on the shape of our local communities. Therefore, Smart City is the most efficient dialogue platform for businesses and local governments.
