EIT Digital Milan Satellite – c/o Cefriel

The event will offer an international perspective of the challenges and opportunities related to the future development of cities, with in-depth contributions from leading industrial actors.

The event, which will be held in the context of the Milano Digital Week, will comprise both public and invitation-only sessions: the first part of the morning will be open to the general public, and dedicated to exploring relevant challenges and business cases/opportunities, namely how urban mobility will change in the digital age, how cities can become safer and more resilient, and how to boost citizens’ participation through the use of digital platforms.

The second part will host a parallel workshops aimed at proposing technical solutions to the challenges presented before. These sessions will be reserved to our partners and to other stakeholders that might be interested in joining the EIT Digital ecosystem. It will be the chance to meet inspiring future business partners and start building community to launch go-to-market solutions in the Digital Cities domain. Industry partners, investors, researchers and entrepreneurs are all welcome.
