November 2018
Smart City Expo Barcelona
13 - 15 November 2018
Barcelona, Spain

Since 2011, Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC) has been an unmissable event combining the latest solutions and technologies, and inspirational keynotes on improving life in cities. In 2018, the event intends to reflect on what makes a city livable, what happens when "gentrification" changes the whole social character of a neighborhood, and how sharing can transform the way it operates so that it can become more sustainable, resilient, inclusive and, of course, smarter with a focus on people.To do so, this year's edition will concentrate on five main topics responding to the key issues facing cities: Digital Transformation, Urban Environment, Mobility, Governance & Finance, and Inclusive & Sharing Cities. This dynamic approach, together with an extended exhibition area full of real solutions, is expected to outnumber 2017 figures and reinforce the smart community all over the world.

RUGGEDISED will be represented at the joint stand of the EU funded smart city projects, with a number of Lighthouse cities taking part in workshops.
