The fourth annual Internet Week Denmark Festival (IWDK) takes place 19-23 April, 2017 in and around Aarhus. The festival is built around the question “How to create a smarter tomorrow?”. Among other events, OASC is organizing a panel discussion on From nano to global scale: Cities Creating Change – Leading Innovation in Localized Ecosystems.
Martin Brynskov, Chair of OASC, will be moderating the discussion accompanied by Davor Meersman, Teppo Rantanen, Niels Højbjerg and the audience. The main focus of the event is how linking government, business, academia and civil society, the Quadruple Helix, is essential for creating cities and societies that can thrive with IoT and nanotechnology innovations. Cities in Finland, Belgium and Denmark provide some excellent examples of ways to shape the future technology market for cities.
As noted on the IWDK webpage: “… the City of Things is alive and thriving in Antwerp. Aarhus continues to grow as a living example of Experimentation as a Service. Tampere has grown private investment exponentially in support of their new community driven, experimental and sustainable economic policies.”
If you are interested in new ambitious global perspectives on IoT and nanotechnology, come to Aarhus and join the discussion and contribute with your ideas, on Friday 21 April, 09:00 – 12.00 in the small hall of DOKK1. Can’t make it? Follow the action on Twitter @OASCities
