Ulm at the Smart City Expo in Barcelona: Swap meet for smart urban solutions

19. November 2021

Until 18 November 2021, political decision-makers and industry representatives from all over the world will meet at the Smart City Expo in Barcelona to discuss current issues relating to the smart city.

Ulm itself has been committed to the digital and sustainable urban transformation in recent years. Sindy Würffel from the Digital Agenda Office will now report on the progress of the smart city in Barcelona as part of the panel discussion “Smart cities & regions made in Baden-Wuerttemberg | Germany – tech driven or human powered? (German: Clevere Städte und Regionen made in Baden-Württemberg | Germany – tech driven or human powered?) at the invitation of “bw international”. The aim is also to bring interesting smart city approaches back to Ulm and to build new partnerships for upcoming projects.

The Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC), the leading international summit for cities and smart urban solutions, gathers the urban innovation industry every year – now for the tenth time. From 16 to 18 November, with over 400 exhibitors and 300 speakers, the event will reflect on the post-pandemic transformation of metropolises and the need to meet the needs of their citizens even more than before, under the motto “We are the cities we make”.

“bw international” is offering a joint stand for municipalities and companies from Baden Württemberg in Barcelona in cooperation with Berlin/Bandenburg.

In order to cover the many areas involved, the congress programme is divided into eight thematic areas: Basic Technologies, Energy and Environment, Mobility, Governance, Housing and Integration, Economy, Infrastructure and Buildings, and Safety and Security.

Numerous cities and countries will present current projects, including Argentina, Barcelona, Austria, Belgium, Berlin, Brazil, Buenos Aires, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, The Hague, India, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Paris, Poland, Sweden and the USA.
