Webinar Series | Urban city apps: experiences from Tampere, Trento and Pamplona

Join us for a webinar on apps for smart cities and learn about some recent use cases from around Europe.

This webinar will present three different city applications in use in cities in Finland, Italy, and Spain – all participating in the STARDUST smart cities project.

What kind of functions do the apps have? What use cases have been found? Who are the applications aimed at? You will hear how the issue has been approached in three cities.
