Power of City Data Conference (July 2016)
In July 2016, the WCCD and Siemens co-hosted the Power of City Data Conference at the Crystal in London. The event convened cities and thought leaders to discuss the central role that data plays in creating the prosperous, sustainable, and resilient cities of the future. The panelists and speakers explored how a focus on data and evidence-based decision-making can better inform choices on smart technologies for urban energy, buildings and transport systems. The event also showcased how leading cities are using comparable, ISO 37120 certified, city data to drive city-to-city learning and best practice sharing on a global scale.
A video summary of the highlights of the conference will be made available soon.
