IEEE Smart Cities: Trento

A couple of months ago, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) selected Trento among the top ten smartest cities in the world.

Each of selected cities was invited to develop a project about a specific area and to share its achievements with IEEE and other cities. Trento has to identify technological and innovative solutions to improve citizens’ quality of life.

In order to achieve this objective, the Municipality of Trento, University of Trento, Trento Rise and IEEE have organized the event called “Trento e il Trentino, città e comunità intelligenti al servizio del cittadino”, on 12 December 2014 in Trento. The event involved the city system of higher education and research, as well as companies and institutions with research centres located in the area. It was the occasion for the exchange of information and ideas, as well as for presentation of on-going projects related to smart cities. GraphiTech awoke a lot of interest with the presentation of its on-going i-SCOPE and SUNSHINE projects, their research results and expected final outcomes.
