U4IoT

Co-Creation Workshop for Smart Cities

22nd to 25th of May 2018 in Geneva

About the event

The main objective of the event is to educate the participants and provide them tools to create services together with citizens.

In collaboration with the City of Carouge, Mandat International, the Internet of Things Master Programme (MAS-IoT), and SynchroniCity, the Coordination and Support Action (CSA) User Engagement for Large Scale Pilots in the Internet of Things (U4IoT) is organising a four-day Co-Creative Workshop for Smart Cities from the 22nd – 25th of May in Geneva and the City of Carouge.

The challenges presented by the inclusion of the City of Carouge in the SynchroniCity project will be taken as a starting point to explain the possibilities that end-user engagement tools offer and the challenges that will stand central during the last two days of the workshop.
