As long-term thinking plays an increasingly important role, smart city solutions have been developed around the world. Latvia is no exception – a smart city ecosystem is also gradually forming here. Those are quite obvious solutions, for example, electrical outlets or micro mobility, or less obvious tools, such as sensors or LED lighting. In order to understand where we are now, where we are going and how to promote cooperation between the responsible institutions, companies and society, EIT Urban Mobility RIS Hub Latvia (Riga Technical University and the innovation movement VEFRESH), together with the tech company Tet, invites you to the Smart City Conference 2022.
During the event, the scope will focus on energy, mobility, sustainable transport, data and internet of things and their importance in the design of a smart city, as well as the citizens’ involvement and social responsibility in order to raise the standard of living of society in Latvian cities.
The aim of the conference is to discuss aspects from a more generic level to a more practical level. Within the conference participants will be able to hear:
- 3 presentations from experts: [1.Presentation on sustainability topic; 2. A presentation about EU vision of the smart city policy [inc. available support for the ecosystem]; 3. A presentation about smart city concept – what it is and what is the potential behind it];
- Panel discussion about Urban Mobility ecosystem in Latvia – where we are and how we should join our forces to foster development;
- 1 presentation from the international high-level expert [presentation of best practice – How Oslo became a leader within the EV sector and what’s next?].
- Panel discussion about EV topic in Latvia – where we are and what should be done within the national policy.
The event will take place on-site but will be broadcasted via social media platforms. The main language of the event is Latvian.
