Smart Metropolia Congress "OPENNESS AND SAFETY", 23-24 November 2016, Gdańsk, Poland
The Smart Metropolia CONGRESS is a meeting place for the representatives of science, business, administration and non-governmental organizations, and an international platform to exchange ideas and experience related to the functioning and issues of metropolitan areas. Its goal is to create a space for discussions on conditions and directions for sustainable development of current and aspiring metropolitan areas – the engines for growth of countries and regions, sources and magnets of innovation, entrepreneurship and capital.
The leading topic of this year’s edition of the CONGRESS will be safety of metropolises. We will seek systemic and technological solutions facilitating safety of metropolitan areas and we will ask about the role of urban and rural connections of metropolises in sustainable and safe development of regions and countries. We will also try to identify hazards to metropolises and think about the dimension of their prevention. In this respect, we will not avoid the question about metropolitan functions and scope of tasks the coordination of which in the metropolitan scale favors assurance of or is even necessary to ensure broadly taken safety of citizens.
