Join with us to Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona in November! The world's leading event for cities will have a Nordics Pavilion which we at VTT will be a part of. VTT will also host a side event on the 14th of November regarding a human-centric, sustainable, and resilient Smart City. Meet us in Barcelona to hear how we can help improving cities to be more future-proof!
Join our workshop on The Business Forum Day, Monday the 14th
The Smart City Business Forum Day brings together decision makers to discuss key challenges for the smart and climate-neutral city. VTT will host a workshop on the Business Forum Day, a day before the main event, about "How to make a successful roadmap for a human-centric, sustainable, and resilient Smart City today".
It's clear to everyone that we are living in a none-sustainable way. And since almost 80% of humans live in cities, we must design a framework for cities that allows us to improve our quality of life at the same time that we lower our impact on the planet.
