Event description

Description

More people than ever live in cities all across the globe, and cities face complex challenges in terms of growth and sustainability. Information and communication technologies are rapidly advancing and can be harnessed to provide solutions to these challenges. Cities are trying to channel and guide long-term development in smart ways, in order to evolve into ‘Smart Cities’. To that aim, the integration of a multitude of perspectives, information and experience, as well as mutual learning and global exchange are necessary.

This event will bring together different perspectives from academia, business and government from Hong Kong and Zurich in a unique way to discuss concrete solutions to the challenges that developing Smart Cities such as Hong Kong and Zurich face. After a brief introduction from a policy perspective, two thematic sessions on mobility and energy systems respectively will delve deeper and in a final panel discussion the different perspectives will be brought together. Social spaces will help the participants to expand their networks and establish cooperation and partnerships.
