PRIAevents is hosting and organizing PRIA Urban Innovation Conference – the unique platform for in-depth discussions between government officials, local stakeholders, business representatives and community leaders. They will highlight research and projects that are helping to build more resilient, sustainable, and healthy urban communities.
PRIA Urban Innovation Conference will take place on 24th of May in Cluj-Napoca city, in continuous development.
All these will add value and provide much more than a high-level networking platform. It will focus on the top point of our urban innovation- mobility, energy, technology and infrastructure.
Urban areas are growing and changing each year so we need to be ready to embrace the future as we grow and change. Therefore, debates will reflect the true meaning of what it takes to develop strong cities for the future. Also, we will highlight points that will lead to successful urban activities and we will provide opportunities to build collaborative partnerships, explore emerging urban issues, discover innovative technology for urban development. All this lead to a healthier life and will save time and money for businesses.
In this way, we hope that you enjoy this conference and will gather information required to continue making our urban communities sustainable for years to come.
Innovative technologies provide enormous opportunities to improve the effectiveness of business and social life of a city, therefore, there’s a big shift coming in the Smart City movement.
How will we reshape our cities and create economic opportunities for decades to come? The innovative technology, green energy, and bicycle and electric car infrastructure are definitely the answers.
Sustainable urban mobility means the design and planning of urban infrastructure, focusing on environmental protection, reducing consumption of conventional energy, reducing pollution and promoting renewable green energy, reducing the costs of the cities and companies. In this context, projects must relate to cycling and alternative transport must correlate with urban planning, education, public health and environmental policies.
Hydroelectric power for cities. Hydropower uses a fuel—water—that is not reduced or used up in the process – the water cycle is an endless, constantly recharging system, hydropower is considered a renewable energy.
The idea of leveraging technology to help cities run better is far from a new concept. Worldwide many innovative city leaders have taken steps to use technology – from environmental sensors that measure air quality to vibration sensors that measure road and bridge safety, to parking sensors that identify available parking spots, we have begun to digitize our cities in steps.
Mobility is one of the most important challenges for our cities. Hydro and green energy improves our lives and also reduces pollution and costs for businesses and households.
All these are solutions that will make cities better places to live, work and play and in the same time, are the beginnings of initiatives that will start to allow economic development and quality of life improvement that will come.
A new type of urban infrastructure the emergence of the digital industrial age is coming available and city leaders that will embrace it stand to be the ones that win in the urban innovation era.
