This are the issues that will be discussed during a round table hosted by Assessio. The conversation will focus on how the technologies work, and what evidence is available for its ability to change our approach, which contributes to more diversity.

Beskrivning av samhällsfrågan
Framtidens hållbara och uppkopplade stad ställer stora krav på samhällets olika aktörer. Vi diskuterar urban mobilitet och hur framtidens smarta städer bör och kan skapas.
