30. November 2011

Cities of the future are confronted with a variety of challenges and require a complex urban infrastructure.  Guest speakers from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands presented highlights from their own respective countries.

In collaboration with RMA Resourcen Management Agentur (program “House of the Future”), AdvantageAustria organized the “City Dialog” with the focus “City of the Future” in Vienna on the 9th November and in Graz on the 10th November 2011.

Cities of the future are confronted with a variety of challenges and require a complex urban infrastructure. The concept “urban technologies” encompasses a wide variety of areas such as urban and regional planning, waste- and water management, transport infrastructure, energy supply and public establishments. Even though Austrian companies are already under the top suppliers in this area there is still international expansion potential, and the realization of such opportunities was one of the main aims of the events.

In addition to the prestigious discussion panel led by the keynote speaker Matthias Horx, a renowned trend- and future consultant, guests could learn about the dynamic markets of city development in north-west Europe through the AdvantageAustria Urban Technology seminar.

In response to the presentation of the newest developments and projects in Austria, guest speakers from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands presented highlights from their own respective countries. Amongst the audience were members from the sectors of politics, business and science and among them was also the secretary general of the Austrian Association of Cities and Towns -Dr. Thomas Weninger.

In autumn 2012 a show case of Austrian solutions and technologies for sustainable cities will take place in Copenhagen. Details will follow in future editions of our newsletters.
