Smart City Expo World Congress 2018

For the third year in a row, EIT Digital is exhibiting at SCEWC and will proudly present to the thousands of visitors its 2018 supported scaleups and Innovation Activities on Digital Cities, a pillar Action Line that leverages the digital transformation of the cities through centralised, participative and collaborative interactions between government, city service providers, industry, and citizens. This transformation enables the deployment of disruptive information, mobility and safety services in the cities. 

Also, during the 3-day-long Congress, our booth will host pitches, presentations, 1 to 1 meetings, business networking and several activities to be announced on our Social Media Channels (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube). Come meet our staff and interview our fantastic Innovation Activities and scaleups at our booth EIT Digital Cities (A180).

For our Digital Cities Action Line Leader, Stéphane Péan, ”SCEWC is the most important international event of the year on Digital Cities.” He leads a Pan-European group of talented researchers from the large corporates integrating EIT Digital’s ecosystem which will be next week a Barcelona represented by “a great selection of disruptive innovation activities presenting their breakthrough solutions with great announcements for the future of EU urban settlements." 

Stéphane will also be presenting at the Central District Agora on Wednesday 14, 16:15, on City Platforms & Data Management.


The complete list of EIT Digital’s Innovation Activities and Scaleups exhibiting at SCEWC:
