Wanted: pitches of smart city solutions for digital twins

On 5 September 2019 Economic Board Utrecht (EBU) and Future City Foundation organise the Networking excursion Digital Twin to Antwerp (Belgium) for administrators with delegation leader Klaas Verschuure (alderman for the Municipality of Utrecht). We want to learn about the possibilities of a digital twin for municipalities and provinces.

To bring supply and demand together and share knowledge, we offer tech companies and data experts the opportunity to pitch their smart city solution for an audience of 40 administrators and the top of municipalities and provinces from the Netherlands. Interested parties can register their pitch until 10 July 2019.

What is a digital twin?
A way to display data and services is a so-called digital twin of an area. This can show the quality of life in the area as real-time as possible and in a dynamic way. In this way you can gain insight into the quality of life of an area, analyse and predict.

  • Smart city solutions for that municipalities or provinces face (physical, social and economic)
  • Successful smart city projects or experiences from local governments which are interesting for other municipalities or provinces.
  • Innovative smart city business ideas from smart entrepreneurs, app builders or other techs.

What we offer

  • 4 minutes in the spotlight

  • A direct reach of 40 administrators and senior civil servants of municipalities and provinces from the Netherlands and Flander, who are interested in digital twins.
  • Participation in the pitches is without charge
  • Travel and accommodation costs are for your own account. Lunch and drinks during the program are included.

What can the pitches be about?
