Smart Cities Conference - Fifth edition

Share this Post:

The Smart Cities Conference is an initiative dedicated to open, inclusive, formal and informal dialogue on Smart Cities issues among all interested stakeholders. It was built from the organisers’ desire to put into an academic debate different aspects of Romanian cities’ life, but also of the cities outside the country’s borders, through multidisciplinary scientific approaches that will talk about the past, present and future, starting from: acceptance of democracy as the most efficient tool of governance and also acceptance and compliance with the state’s rules.


The event aims to:


  • Raise awareness and promote a better understanding of the Smart Cities concept among stakeholders
  • Build and strengthen the capacity of these stakeholders to actively participate in national, regional and international Smart Cities developing process
  • Facilitate multistakeholder discussions, exchanges and collaboration on Smart Cities related issues that are of particular concern for stakeholders
  • Contribute to creating linkages between the Smart Cities realities at the national, European and international level
