Urban Mobility Days 2022

Urban Mobility Days is a major event jointly organised by the European Commission, Directorate-General for Mobility & Transport (DG MOVE) and the Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU. Across three days, we traverse the length and depth of sustainable urban mobility, examining the challenges and solutions at hand.

Following in the footsteps of previously successful conferences, this year’s theme is 'Moving people and goods more sustainably'. Cities face critical challenges on the path to sustainable mobility, yet they also hold the keys to action. More than 70% of Europeans live in cities, and urban areas account for around 23% of the EU’s GHG transport emissions. At the same time, European cities are home to some of the most innovative and bold solutions for both passenger and freight transit.

Urban Mobility Days provides a unique forum to convene policymakers, local authorities, academics, NGOs, urban transport practitioners, and urban planners to connect, share and discuss the path forward for a sustainable, innovative, and equitable future for Europe’s urban mobility.

Taking place every two years, the event combines the CIVITAS Forum Conference and the European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). This year’s edition coincides with European Mobility Week taking place every year from 16-22 September.

As 2022 is the European Year of Youth, Urban Mobility Days puts a spotlight on young voices and views, exploring how Europe’s young people can be part of the path towards climate resilience.

INTERGEO 2022

The 28th edition of INTERGEO, the leading international event for forward-looking geo applications, will take place from October 18 - 20, 2022 at Messe Essen in Germany. In addition to the presence of EXPO and CONFERENCE, digital offerings will be specifically integrated into the INTERGEO concept.

The topics of digital twins and BIM in construction will play a major role at INTERGEO 2022. The focus will be on their use in Building Information Modelling, smart planning and construction and their use in the context of smart cities. Modelling and simulation are essential, especially for predictions and scenarios in the event of a disaster. Rapid access to the latest geodata for a wide range of services also plays a major role. And in the field of mobility (e.g. autonomous driving), digital twins serve both as a basis and as a permanent source of information.

In addition, INTERGEO will present current developments in the German surveying sector around its motto: Inspiration for a smarter world: from spatial reference and positioning to 4D geodata and geospatial IoT to mobile mapping applications. Due to climate change, earth observation data collected via satellites is also becoming increasingly important.

7th Smart City & Buildings

The resilience of our cities, society and living standards has just gone through an unpredictable stress test. Our usually lively city centers and streets emptied faster than ever. The world changed exponentially in just a few months.

Local authorities could tangibly identify which Smart City initiatives worked and which ones need to undergo a major re-think. The escalation of the pandemic created a sort of Living Lab environment, underlining the shelter-in-place needs of functional micro-communities, crowd control, civic offices, e-health, surveillance, emergency services, neighbourhood real-time data, cross-departmental data needs and many more vital elements of a Smart City.

The microscopic small virus accelerated the need for digitisation, collaboration and innovation. In this crossroad of modern history, a new age of modern cities and its purposes, services and infrastructure will take form.

It is around these forward-looking topics our agenda is built to guide you in building up smart, sustainable and resilient cities of the future. Better quality of life and urban areas that are increasingly connected, powered by smart technologies and at the same time adaptive societally.

Welcome to explore imperative business models and strategies to improve your city. Welcome to SMART CITY & BUILDINGS 2022!

Future Smart Cities - 5th International Conference

Smart cities use information and communication technologies to improve operational efficiency, share information with the public, and improve the quality of government services and the well-being of citizens. Their mission is to enhance the functions of the city, thereby promoting economic growth and improving citizens' quality of life through the use of smart technology. Thus, overall resource consumption, waste, and total cost are reduced. Therefore, awareness of the benefits of building smart cities should be promoted and executed around the world. Therefore, the recommendations and research discuss new proposals for the cities of the future, as well as the scope of the transformation of our city.

IEREK, understanding the importance of smart cities, has organized the 5th edition of the "Future Smart City" International Conference, taking place online from November 18-20, 2022. A large number of researchers and stakeholders gather to discuss how building a smart city fosters sustainability and which challenges and concerns need to be considered when investing in services and infrastructure supporting the city to be more livable.

IEREK invites Policymakers, citizens, researchers, universities, businesses, and planners to discuss this topic, maximize the benefits of the conference, and present successful suggestions for future smart cities.
