Smart Cities in Asia: Opportunities for Valencian Companies and Institutions
Asia Innova is Casa Asia’s main programme for sharing progress in the scientific, technological and innovation fields in Asia. For the first time this year it holds a part of its programme in Valencia, as a result of the agreement between Valencia City Council and Casa Asia for the promotion of relations between Valencia and Asian countries in different spheres.
Asian countries are very advanced in the application of new Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in cities, making them more efficient and economically sustainable and competitive. Thus, at the same time, the main Asian cities are eager to find new solutions and look for international collaboration in fields such as urban transport, ITC application, energetic efficiency or management of public services. In this regard, there are many opportunities for Valencia companies, especially Star-ups.
Within this context, Valencia City Council and Casa Asia are organising a conference on innovation in the field of Smart Cities in Asia, paying special attention to Start-ups.
The conference will consist of two panel sessions including well-known Asian experts working in the field of smart cities and start ups from China, India and Korea along with the main actors from both sectors in Valencia.
At the session representatives of companies (especially Start Ups) will take part, as well as R&D centres, universities and institutions from Valencia with interests in the Asian continent.
