The event will present specific cases and innovative proposals, such as the Municipality of Calonge and Sant Antoni, for example, which has become a paradigm of the technical management of urban density, and its implications for the optimising municipal resources through smart-tech technology. Several success stories and projects from the smart cities sector will also be presented internationally, and the winning projects from the 1st edition of the Smart Design Business Challenge held at the Castell de Calonge on 8 October will be announced.
