Can outfitting urban infrastructure with sensors and software make a big difference?
Smart cities use crafty technologies to reduce resources and costs, yet deliver better public and utility services to residents. Is there an opportunity for the Grand Duchy and India to work together on such projects? That is the topic of a seminar organised by the Indian Business Chamber of Luxembourg next Monday evening.
According to the IBCL: “For developing smart cities, innovation and technology are basic vehicles towards a smart society with people, companies and governments prepared to face great challenges in climate change, high consumption of non-renewable energy sources, economic development, the increasingly dense populations and obsolete infrastructures. This conference will focus around this theme on the key elements and business collaboration.”
The panel consists of: Philippe Adriaenssens of Eurochambers, the umbrella group for national chambers of commerce in more than 40 European countries; Latif Ladid of the IPv6 Forum, an international technical standards talk shop; Philippe Dubernard of IBM’s “Smarter Cities” group; and Heike Carl Zatterstrom of Luxembourg-based Boson Energy (pictured), which makes biomass energy systems.
Registration opens at 6pm, the roundtable gets under way at 6.30pm, and it will be followed by a networking cocktail.
