City of Innovation
- Innovation for residents / Harpa 3 May
- The future of Reykjavík is in your hands / City Hall 27–28 April
Over 20 speakers in one day
The future of Reykjavík is now. New solutions call for innovation in infrastructure and services. The knowledge and experience needed for this work is distributed all over. Let’s harness the knowledge at the Reykjavík Smart City Conference in Harpa and evaluate the opportunities ahead, everything from smart lamp-posts to self-driving cars.
What innovations are ahead in the city’s infrastructures and services? What is a smart lamp-post? How can you improve the city’s information and traffic flow with the Waze transportation app?
Robin Chase, founder of ZipCar, author of Peers Inc and one of the world’s foremost peer-to-peer economy experts, shares her wisdom with conference guests.
