Urban ICT Arena Summit

Don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of our celebration of Urban ICT Arena’s first year! A historic moment for the Electrum Foundation.

We have come a long way since the inauguration ceremony we held on 28th November 2016. Urban ICT Arena grew exponentially in 2017, and is now wrapping up the intensive year with over 60 projects and 40 partners. The year has been filled with both lessons learned and successes achieved. Now we want to share them with you!

Listen to inspiring keynote speakers as they navigate us through their journey with Urban ICT Arena throughout 2017. The focus of the summit will be on tangible results, reviewing what the Founding Partners have achieved in our first year, finding out what they have in store for next year and identifying what is missing from the testbed in their view.

Take the opportunity to go for a walk around the exhibition area where we have exclusively selected 11 projects/project owners to showcase the potluck that characterizes Urban ICT Arena and be inspired by new ideas.

And last but not least, don’t miss the opportunity to mingle!

Welcome to be not boring with us at the Urban ICT Arena Summit on 15th December 2017!

Best regards,
Petra Dalunde
COO of Urban ICT Arena
