By 2050 over 70% of people living on our planet will live in cities. This brings a whole new set of challenges and opportunities that we need to solve together: governments, businesses, academic institutions and of course citizens. Are you also curious how we can overcome those challenges and create economic growth, safety and social stability?
Purpose of the workshop
The 2 October event will be a day dedicated to making our future smarter and brighter. A day focused on the challenges you face today in your sector and with the opportunity to create a collaboration platform with all the stakeholders. Technology is an essential enabler in solving 21st century challenges; it is not THE solution but the key to getting to the solution with you and your partners.
Together we will have a deeper look at what is happening in the World, in Europe, in the Netherlands and in the afternoon in
specifi c working sessions focusing on Local and Regional governments, the Telecom sector and Energy sector.
To create value cross industry for your organisation in the working sessions we give you also the opportunity to invite your
colleagues and constituencies, if they have a complementary expertise.

The ‘Curam’- solution – Keeping the citizen at the forefront of municipalities
Dutch local governments are on the verge of one of the greatest changes in governance. They will be faced with technological, cultural and organizational challenges. Despite all the new tasks due to the decentralization of duties, it will be important to keep the citizen at the forefront; this can be done by an improvement in information. The IBM solution ‘Curam’ offers a tested solution to these challenges.
