Euro-CASE Annual Conference 2015

Delft, 2 November 2015


The Netherlands Academy of Technology and Innovation AcTI hosted the Euro-CASE Annual Conference 2015 in Delft. The conference provided a forum to explore the topic “Engineering Smart Cities of the Future” with a special focus on the influence of the digital industry on the behaviour of people in cities.


The conference addressed the question which influence engineering, technology and innovation can and will have on the development of smart cities. The focus was on finding, developing and realising new, better and more exciting solutions for our future cities. This requires a dynamic interaction of vision, public administration and implementation by innovative companies. acatech Fellow Klaus Beckmann, President of the Academy for Spatial Research and Planning, Germany, was one of the conference’s key note speakers giving a talk on “Transportation in Smart Cities”. Reinhard F. Hüttl, President of Euro-CASE, concluded the conference during which the long term vision on the development of smart cities served as a starting point and base line.
