    Titel of presentation: Bring the user and the market closer when developing the Smart City

    Description of presentation: User trust, confidence and empowerment is important for the development of Smart Cities. The market and regulation evolves towards a more mature market where users are empowered and where data is handled more responsibly. Municipalities will benefit by this development. I will be going through a number of concrete activities, user cases and pieces of legislation that will demonstrate this shift in the market. The evolvement demonstrates that the users and the market should be brought closer to the actual development of Smart City solutions by the municipalities. Furthermore, we should also prepare national solutions for the export market. We should strengthen our competitiveness in this area especially by focusing the solutions brought by the EU such as regulatory sandboxes. This will be explored in the presentation.

    Bio: Cand.merc.jur. Senior Advisor. 20 years of experience from working within the digital area in numerous ministries, EU-Commission, telecom provider and currently working in the confederation of Danish Industry – DI Digital.

      Digital infrastructure and smart technology solutions in cities are crucial not only for businesses and urban management but also for the way we live, work, and socialize. This session explores technical solutions such as IoT objects embedded in the cityscape that collect data and the merging of the physical and digital space in public arenas such as schools, libraries, museums and city spaces. Technology that can be used by everyone is imperative for the development of (real) smart cities to prevent it from becoming a barrier for sustainable adaptation. In this session we will also address how policy making can influence how we create transparency and equality in the way we use, visualize and access smart city technologies. Implementation of a Computing continuum in cities will play a critical role in developing a green and socially sustainable digital transformation.
      This session will relate to the “Smart buildings” and “Smart Energy” sessions.
