What makes a city smart? For the private companies and local administrations participating in the Nordic Edge Expo last September, a smart city is a place where community needs, new technologies and innovation meet. An ecosystem of urban planners, IT and renewable energy companies, community development experts, universities, research clusters, and residents, pursuing the common goal of building the city of the future.
Satellite applications have a role to play in the building of more sustainable, efficient and increasingly connected cities. This was the message of the speakers invited to attend the session organised by Eurisy during the three-day event. The session focusing on Satellite Applications for Infrastructure Management was organised under the Eurisy Space for Cities initiative, which aims to explore current and potential uses of satellite-based services to increase quality of life in cities. The current document details on speakers’ interventions and exchanges, whilst putting forward recommendations for future questions to be explored.
