Smart City Week 2014 A vision for society and the role of cities

The objective of Smart city Week 2014 is to create a vision of what is needed in urban development-in light of current social issues-at the present time, and to consider specific methods to achieve this.
This week-long event will be attended by representatives of national and local governments of Japan and other countries faced with the issues at hand, as well as corporations with numerous ideas on how to resolve these issues, who interact with each other through various conference and networking opportunities.
Join us to apply the knowledge you have gained in operational testing to transform your products and services into solutions for society, and into greater business opportunities.
