Shake UP your city News : Future Network and Mobile Summit 2013


Second best demonstration stand


A team from the Future Cities Project attended the Future Network and Mobile Summit 2013 in order to present the work developed as part of the project and of smart cities technologies provided by some of our partners such as Streambolico, Veniam and Ubiwhere. Among 27 exhibitors, the Future Cities Project stand was awarded second prize for "demonstration stand".

Our presence at this event also aimed to foster interaction amongst the over 300 participants and take on board some suggestions and worthwhile ideas for research that may be worth implementing within the project. Refer to the video and photographs.
