10:30 - 12:00Optimizing Urban Mobility

Cities are facing enormous challenges in creating an attractive and healthy city for their citizens. Intermodal passenger transport planning solutions, smart parking solutions based on use of real-time data and intelligent traffic lights are just some examples.

Designing Energy Infrastructure
An intelligent and flexible infrastructure is more than just a smart electricity grid; it is a smart energy system, which is able to integrate many different types of energy grids including gas, electricity and district heating and cooling.
Waste as a Resource
How do we make the most of our waste? Waste is already a high value product traded across borders and resource scarcity makes efficient use of waste resources necessary in order to ensure future production.
Water Management
How do we handle water in an intelligent manner in ever bigger cities? Water constitutes an array of challenges depending on local needs and conditions. In fast growing urban areas water is becoming a scarce resource and there is a need to avoid water waste and to find new ways to clean and reuse waste water.
Big Data for Smart City Solutions
There is no doubt that data can improve city planning and it is the raw material enabling smart city solutions. However, how can we utilize big data for large scale smart city planning and solutions? How can we make big data a natural part of the smart city?
Creating the Liveable City
The 21st century belongs to the cities. Situated at the very heart of the global social, economic, and environmental development, cities hold the key creating a truly sustainable future.
