August 28, 2019 @ 8:00 am - August 29, 2019 @ 5:00 pm CEST

Soft City: design of future city services exploiting data market places starting from urban everyday life

Academic and industrial partners are invited to take part at the Soft City track to imagine together how to get the “hard” – technology – components to serve the “soft” part of the city – people, processes and lifestyles…

The industry track will be organized around 3 half-a-day sessions – 2 panel discussions and 1 co-creation workshop. Expert panel speakers and professional facilitators will guide you through the journey.

The first panel session “Envisioning a Soft Urban Future”​ will be articulated around questions such as:

  • What urban future do citizens want ?
  • What urban future is currently imagined and offered by technology providers ?
  • What is overlooked by technological solution providers ?

The second panel session “Enacting the soft urban future” will discuss existing approaches, methods and tools enabling creation of future cities. Participants will be invited to share their experience and express their needs.

The last session will be organised as a co-creation workshop “Co-creating Soft City services” and driven by professional facilitators.

At the end of the track journey, a vision of “Soft City”, outlined methods, approaches and tools for Soft city design and defined future “soft” city services that will make use of data marketplaces and future digital infrastructures, including 5G networks will be produced.


Online Registration is open here.
