Cities set standards to be smarter and more sustainable

19/10/2017 - 19/10/2017 (Brussels, Congress Centre Albert Borschette)

In the realm of the 2017 World Standards Day theme ‘Standards make cities smarter’, the European Standardization Organizations organize an intensive one-day event with keynotes, case studies and panel discussions on Thursday 19 October.

The purpose is to explore the needs of and provide solutions for smart cities in their roll out of suitable infrastructures, services, systems, devices, equipment and much more. Participants will network and be inspired by solutions that address the challenges of making cities smart and more sustainable, learn from existing projects about how standards already contribute to this goal in Europe, and discover how standards can help in scaling up and replicating smart and sustainable cities’ solutions. The event will look at how to replicate smart city solutions and investigate if standards are the right tools for cities.

The event will gather representatives of local communities, city authorities, city professionals, representatives of smart cities projects, associations of cities, policy makers and regulators, regions, investors and governments, standardizers, societal stakeholders, and other interested parties.
