International Workshop “Smart and resilient cities – myth or reality” 

The School of Management and Technology at P.PORTO invites the community to participate in the International Workshop.

Date: 23rd May 2024, from 05.00 pm to 06.30 pm, P04 

Against the backdrop of climate change being experienced on an ever-increasing scale and growing social inequalities that pose a serious threat to the sustainability of communities, more and more attention is being paid to the sustainability and resilience of cities. Urban intelligence, or the saturation of urban spaces with technologies that help prevent crises, plays an additional role. 

Becoming “smarter” and more resilient, anticipating and responding to threats to communities, not only can save lives and billions of dollars in rebuilding and economic losses but also encourages social equity and bonding, supporting communities that grow and rebuild in ways that make them stronger than before.  

What does it mean to be smart and resilient in the context of a city? What are the different elements/factors of smartness and resilience? Can any city become this way? How to create such cities? These will be the main topics of the workshop.
