SUSCO Youth - Digital Cities workshop

The CEU Campus
Wednesday, March 1, 2017, 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Due to rapidly accelerating urbanization, more than 60% of the world's population will live in cities by 2050. The co-existence and the constantly changing socio-economic-environmental conditions pose new challenges in many areas to citizens and municipality leaders as well. The cities of the future have the potential to become the scenes of mutual adaptation, where their well-established info-communication infrastructure will adapt to the needs of the citizens.

At the SUSCO Youth „Digital Cities" event, experts from IBM and T-Systems will showcase the intelligent solutions that „Digital Cities” can provide to city-dwellers and municipality leaders. Following the presentations at the IBM interactive workshop, you will have an opportunity to investigate how modern info-communication technologies (ICT) and services can help cities manage public services, urban transportation, power supply, health care services, security, education and digital skills of city-dwellers.

Join us and let’s discover together the cities of the future!

Moderator: Attila Katona, Doctoral Researcher of Urban Innovations (Department of Environmental Science and Policy, CEU)
