Due to the rapid outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Europe, the event has been cancelled.

IMPORTANT: The rapid outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Milano and the travel restrictions already imposed by many companies impact the programme and attendance of the event planned on 11-12 March in Milano. ETSI has decided to cancel the event.

For more information, please contact events@etsi.org.

Today more than half of the world’s population lives in urban areas, and this figure is expected to rise significantly in coming years.  This places new demands on key city services and infrastructure such as transport, energy, health care, water and waste management. 

Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) play an important role in connecting these resources, securely managing the massive amounts of data generated, and providing the relevant services that are required.

A ‘smart city’ uses digital technologies to:

  • Engage more effectively and actively with its citizens
  • Enhance the city performance and the wellbeing of the citizens
  • Reduce operational costs and the city resource consumption
  • Generate new business opportunities and increase the attractiveness of the city
  • Purchase innovative services and technologies from local suppliers, such as SMEs and startups, as to stimulate the development of a thriving digital ecosystem
  • and much more ...

The creation of smart cities will only be achieved with a holistic approach, supported by globally acceptable standards that enable fully interoperable solutions that can be deployed and replicated at scale. (more)

Event Objective

The ETSI Roadshow seeks to involve cities in the discussions on smart sustainable cities and communities conducted in ETSI on related standardization aspects.  The ETSI Roadshow will travel through Europe and will meet Milan, Barcelona, Dresden and Paris/Montrouge. 

The first event will be hosted by the City of Milano, in Italy, on 11-12 March 2020, co-located with the Milano Digital Week.

The ETSI Roadshow is an ETSI Board initiative, led in partnership with EUROCITIES, eG4U and the European Commission. This is part of the ETSI Long Term Strategy to build on existing strengths by devising a specific program for SMEs in ETSI.

Why should one attend?

This event will be an opportunity for attendees to:

  • Discover sustainable and efficient solutions deployed in smart cities and rural communities;
  • Find out about regulation and support from the European Commission in this field;
  • Learn about success stories of European Smart Cities and Communities Funded Project;
  • Find out how standardization facilitates smart developments in cities and communities;
  • Learn how the local digital ecosystem of SMEs and startups can support a smart city and vice versa;
  • Be up to date and discover how to get involved in ETSI Smart City & Communities initiatives and standardization projects.

Target Audience

This event will be of particular interest for:

  • City and community elected representatives and officials;
  • Organisations representing citizens, consumers and societal stakeholders;
  • Local SMEs active in Smart Cities and Communities solutions as well as SME associations;
  • Innovation stakeholders in the region;
  • Smart cities standards contributors.

The Programme Committee is pleased to share a stable version of the Agenda.

    Setting the Scene

    On the threshold of a new term, the newly elected President of the European Commission recently spoke about the "green deal" as a cornerstone of her presidency. With 70% of the world's population living in cities in 2050, cities and communities have a major role to play in this ambitious project aiming to make Europe as the first carbon neutral continent in the world. Therefore, all the partners: cities and communities, academics, SMEs, utilities, providers and, of course, the commission itself, are being brought together during these two days. The aim is to go beyond the Proofs of Concepts to find industrial solutions with the support of standardisation bodies. (link to the ETSI Video on Smart City)

    Session 2: Standardization value for SMEs, Users and Citizens
    Chaired by Sebastiano Toffaletti, European DIGITAL SME Alliance

    The two main issues that communities face before planning to implement new solutions are the cost (from an investment and operational perspective) and their confidence in the ability of those same solutions to evolve and expand. Interoperability and standardisation play a key role in both of these aspects. The consequences for SMEs that comply to standards are an immediate development and expansion of their business. Cities as end-users, and hence the living environment of their citizens, gain immensely from the use of standards solutions.
