"Alzette Belval, towards a cross-border smartcity?"October 2017
Such was the question posed on 16 September to the hundred or so participants at the conference organised by the Alzette Belval EGTC, in collaboration with Luxembourg’s Ministry for Sustainable Development and Infrastructure and the municipal council of Esch-sur-Alzette. The conference aimed to present the general concept of the smartcity applied at a cross-border level, while emphasising mobility.
The general concept of the smartcity was presented over the morning, illustrated by the town of Cologne (Grow Smarter project) and the Basel Trinational Eurodistrict for the cross-border aspect. A round table with the elected representatives of the Alzette Belval territory followed these presentations. The afternoon focussed on mobility with the presentation of several strategies for intelligent mobility and practical experiences from local authorities and private businesses. More info [FR]
