Round table “Smart Cities: Services, Actors, Solutions”

 

About the event

 

 

Round table “Smart Cities: Services, Actors, Solutions” will be held on October 4, 2018 within the first day of the international research conference GSOM Emerging Markets Conference 2018.

 

This focus of the round table will be on the Russian program “Digital economy” – a framework for all regions to implement smart-city solutions and boost innovations in public sector.

The main difficulty of digitalization is not so much the development and implementation of smart services themselves, but limited possibilities for integrating data from various information systems into a common space, numerous regulatory barriers and lack of competences. This challenge defines the first out of three areas of implementing the Concept: each region should have comfortable conditions for introducing the most advanced smart services, regardless of where they were developed.

Sustainable competitive advantages are impossible to reach only through implementing the policy of borrowing and transferring innovation, no matter how effective it may be. So, the second implementation area of the smart city concept is establishing a center (or centers) for developing globally competitive smart solutions on regional level.

The third challenge is set by the need to correlate any scientific and technological solutions with the demands of society. This requires a targeted policy of establishing effective communications with all stakeholders important for the project. It is also essential to brand Sverdlovsk region as a center of digital economy in the Russian Federation and in the world.

 

Topics for discussions:

  • Сoncept of a smart city: challenges for development and ways of implementation on a legacy infrastructure
  • Universities and smart city projects
  • Sustainable Smart City: avoiding economic and cultural drifts

GSOM Emerging Markets Conference 2018 participants are welcome to participate.
