Smart Country Convention – Special Edition: 26-27 October 2021

Who is addressed by the Smart Country Convention?

SCCON is addressing everyone who wants to drive forward the digitalisation of the public sector – decisionmakers and civil servants, companies providing services of general interest and the digital economy, as well as representatives from science and research along with representatives from the political sector. The aim is to learn from best practice, to accelerate the digitalisation process and to implement it in a citizen-oriented way. This is why a comprehensive exchange of knowledge and ideas is so important. In Germany, for example, we can benefit from experiences of our European neighbours like Denmark, Lithuania and Austria. But cross-sector exchange is also highly important. It is particularly in the fields of Smart City and Smart Region where we can see how strongly issues such as mobility, energy and digitalisation are growing together.

What to expect from SCCON?

Participants can look forward to numerous highlights: the programme includes lectures, panel discussions, examples of best practice and digital trends. They can be followed by live streaming or viewed later on demand. The topics include questions of mobility in cities and rural areas, sustainability, GAIA-X in municipalities as well as IT security, digital platforms and open data. Furthermore, exhibitors from the digital economy will present their innovations and services. Of course, networking will have a priority as well: By this way the participants can exchange ideas and network with experts from politics, the digital economy and science via chats, private meetings or spontaneous video calls. The Smart Country Start Awards in the categories E-Government and Smart City will be an exciting event. It will encourage young companies, talented new business founders and visionary ideas around the digitalisation of the public space.
