URBAN TECH WORKLAB
THE CITY CHALLENGE
All over the world, cities lead the economic, technological and cultural growth, with half of global population already inhabiting urban centers.
By 2025, the 60% of global GDP will be solely produced by 600 cities and we will benefit from 200 million Connected Vehicles and 20 billion Smart Devices.
In order to meet this trend and inject positive change within our cities, this program will incubate and validate those disruptive solutions that truly bring humans back on the core of urban living, making urban spaces more interconnected, sustainable and efficient.
