Webinar: Opportunities and Difficulties around Smart City Solutions

LOCATION
Online
DATE
16:00-17:30 BST, 23 August

Join the first webinar in the new Enabling Smarter Cities (ESC) series, on Thursday 23 August at 16:00-17:30 BST. 

Smart city solutions and their benefits have gained more recognition recently, but the implementation of such solutions is often complicated. A significant volume of knowledge and experience are available which isn’t being exchanged effectively between cities.

The ESC project aims at providing different stakeholders with the necessary understanding of these solutions for making justified decisions and taking action to drive these solutions forward. ESC is planning a series of webinars from the introduction of opportunities and challenges around Smart City projects, to more specific issues that the cities are facing such as governance, finance and data security.

Experts from different fields from all over the world will join and support us in delivering the content to our audiences including decision makers, procurers, planners, practitioners, city advisors and manufacturers.
