With exciting presentations and a high-level keynote from Fraunhofer Morgenstadt Initiative, Hawa Dawa was able to attract a wide audience – reaching from Smart City solutions providers, representatives from cities to interested citizens.

The objective of this event was on putting spotlights on the various aspects of the topic  “Smart City” and to provide a space for networking and exchange of ideas. The event focussed on the areas of “Smart City and air quality – the framework, impact and trends” and “Artificial intelligence and machine learning – working principles, applications and chances”. In his keynote speech on “Smart City – between technical capability and public needs” Dr Alanus von Radecki of the Fraunhofer Morgenstadt Initiative showed fascinating examples and provided exciting food for thought. After the presentations, the audience got engaged in lively and committed discussions with the Hawa Dawa experts and the invited speaker.

About Fraunhofer Morgenstadt:

In the “Morning City Initiative”, the Fraunhofer Society develops the solutions for the city of the future together with partners from industry and municipalities.

Cities are the future of humanity. More than half of the world’s people already live in cities; in Germany, it is as much as 70 percent. They are all looking for security and prosperity, education and networking and the urban lifestyle, in short: quality of life. In a limited space, more and more people want to take advantage of the chances of a good life. Social division must be avoided and a sustainable use of natural resources must be achieved. Thus, all areas from waste to energy, governance, mobility and water supply are relevant in the process of sustainable urban development towards a smart city of the future.
