Cities are looking for ways to provide better services at lower cost while moving towards increased sustainability.
Smart electricity grids, new forms of multi-modal transport and new concepts for living and working can help cities achieve their energy efficiency goals. However, these new services all depend on integrating ICT, a need that is opening up global growth markets. This session will provide an overview of the key trends towards smart cities and discuss the relationship between ICT research and its application in these cities. Discussion will also focus on how Europe can benefit fully from having invented much of the ICT technology which is now central to smart cities. Participants will consider what future research is required to strengthen Europe’s position in the sector. Session presentations will be based on insights from the eMobility platform.
