Panel: What is the “Killer App” for Smart Cities? (0945-1105)
Smart cities promise to make urban life cleaner, greener, and more efficient. As cities make this transition, what will be the “killer apps” that citizens will want to use, and who will build them? What benefits will emerge as smart cities begin to collaborate and learn from each other? And how can the public and private sector work together to maximize the power of data in all European cities?
Morning Coffee Break (1105-1120)
Panel: How Will the Internet of Things and Data Analytics Reshape Public Transport? (1120-1240)
Hundreds of millions of people use public transport in the EU. Transport can be improved by using the Internet of Things to estimate accurate arrival and journey times, make ticketing easier and more flexible, and better understand what more people need from the service. What have been the greatest data-driven achievements in public transport so far, how have policymakers supported these efforts, and what should come next?
Panel: How Can Smart Cities Empower Citizens With Personal Data? (1340-1500)
Cities often have many different agencies collecting data about citizens. What could they achieve if they better share citizen data across agencies and use these common resources to deliver personalized services to citizens? What potential is there for analytics, whether it be at the level of the individual citizen, the city, or the whole of Europe?
Afternoon Coffee Break (1500-1520)
Panel: How Can Cities Move From Pilot Projects to Implementation? (1520-1640)
Europe has a number of impressive smart city pilot projects, many of them made possible by Horizon 2020 funding. As start-up funding runs out, how can local authorities scale-up their pilots into city-wide services? What business models will secure investment in data-driven cities for the long-term, and how can smart cities foster competition in the European economy?
