Digitalization and urbanization seem to go hand in hand

The increasing digitization is changing all municipal processes and it redefines relations between a city and a society, and also between a city and a region. The seminar held in Malmö on 29 May 2018 by Union of the Baltic Cities (UBC) and Baltic Development Forum (BDF) gathered answers to this disruptive revolution.

City cases

The first part of the seminar started with two perspectives on how to deal with the potentials and challenges of digitalization in the Cities of Hamburg and Malmö.
