 Open & Interoperable Smart Cities: Bridging the Gap 

Live from INTERGEO 2021 and joined virtually by our partners at Fraunhofer FOKUS

Tuesday, 21 September 2021 • 11:40-12:00 CET

Interoperability remains one of the key challenges preventing the upscaling up of European smart cities, but it also offers great opportunities. As the smart cities market grows larger by the day, it also becomes more fragmented in terms of vendors, technologies and standards, which in turn leads to missed opportunities and high long-term costs for both cities and tech vendors. Join this session from BABLE and Fraunhofer FOKUS to learn more about the interoperability gap in smart cities, why it matters and effective approaches for assuring that IoT solutions that can effectively 'plug and play' together to create efficient, scalable and sustainable smart cities that best benefit citizens and communities.
