Technology in the urban space – opportunities and pitfalls
Get ready for a “treasure hunt” style event around Aarhus City Lab right next to Dokk1.
In Aarhus we’re actively exploring questions such as what are the implications of technology in the urban space and how does technology impact the everyday life of citizens? What are the opportunities – and pitfalls – related to the increasing use of sensors and data to measure everything in and around the city?
In this session we will split you into teams and your team’s mission is to discover pieces of technology in the City Lab and to uncover and discuss various topics related to building the data driven, “Smart City”.
So put on your good shoes and weather appropriate clothes for this outdoor event near DOKK1!
May the best team win! (running not required :-)
About Aarhus City Lab
The purpose of the Aarhus City Lab is to be a test facility for Smart City solutions and a showroom for new Smart City initiatives. The City Lab will function as a playground for partners, a test facility for current and future EU initiatives and a place where Aarhus can develop its digital citizenship.
The primary focus areas are mobility, parking, waste, digital art & culture, events, exhibitions, public hearing, interactive installations, incentives for exercise and much more. Furthermore, the City Lab is a place for collaboration with local small and medium-sized enterprises and start-ups and is an opportunity for them to display their ideas.
Geographically, the City Lab stretches from Agro Food Park just north of Aarhus to Dokk1 at the center of Aarhus. Business clusters such as Aarhus University Hospital, Agro Food Park, IT City Katrinebjerg and Energy Hub Navitas support the City Lab with knowledge on Food, Health, Clean tech and much more.
