Hear from our panel of experts, including a Swiss Smart City supplier, a chief digital officer of a Southern European city and our local Swiss Business Hubs, on how Swiss companies can position themselves in this dynamic market.

Find out the best practice for Swiss exporters to get suppliers for European Smart Cities and what support is available. Learn how the ecosystems work in cities such as Paris, Rome and Madrid.

The Smart City cycle explained

Our specialists will reveal the whole Smart City cycle, discussing how the frame conditions set by a city (GovTech) as the ordering party have a central role. Get insights on how they define conditions like data protection and standards of digitalization to private suppliers before they can offer new innovations. Our roundtable is particularly beneficial for Swiss businesses in Tech, IoT, HVAC, Apps, ICT, Cleantech, Energy, MEM, Recycling and Digital Health.
