Milano Smart City Conference (Copia)

Cities as networks:
connectivity, energy, innovative services

Fiera Milano Rho, 23-24 November 2021


In November, SMART BUILDING EXPO, a technology integration event, will host the second Milano Smart City Conference. The first edition of 2019 mapped the panorama of new technologies applied to urban centers and the territory and it registered more than 400 technicians and administrators.
In 2021, taking advantage of the concomitance with MADE expo (the leading trade fair for the construction world), the focus will be on the fundamental theme of the relationship between the built environment and the urban environment.
Building and city, particular and general, individual, and collective responsibility. These are terms that we will hear about in the coming years, when we will see a complex energy transition; however, they are also extraordinarily topical subjects, thanks to the considerable tax benefits provided by the government to accelerate urban regeneration through building efficiency, perhaps even more so, through the European medium-term investment strategy known as the Green New Deal.

The aim is to address the issue of the relationship between buildings,
urban area by reversing the focus in the two working sessions.

Two mornings and one afternoon of work in presence and live streaming on the SBI Network platform with the possibility of B2B matching.

FIRST SESSION: BUILDING VS CITY Tuesday 23 November, 10am-1pm

The building is the fundamental foundation on which the smart city is built. What characteristics should new buildings have and what needs to be done to adapt existing ones so that they are resources and not a problem?

SECOND SESSION: CITY VS BUILDING Wednesday 24 November, 10am-1pm

The urban environment progressively produces new services that impact on the lifestyles of its inhabitants and, consequently, on the buildings they use as homes or places to live in. How does management at urban level impact on living environments?

THIRD SESSION: SPACE VS CITY Wednesday 24 November 2.30-5.30 pm

Earth observation technologies and the use of satellites for telecommunications are valuable resources for fulfilling certain city-functions in relation to its territory. What are they and how can these new services be accessed?
