Virtual Workshop: Smart Cities 5.0 - Digital Transformation through Disruptive Technologies & Standards

The concept of smart cities is widely touted, yet little consensus exists on its definition or implementation. Many technologies are available, yet no single solution has emerged that can be applied to all cities around the world. To better understand the technologies available as well as some of the best practices underway, IEC SyC Smart Cities is hosting its first virtual workshop to discuss the sustainable digital transformation of cities. The workshop will focus on disruptive technologies and how standards can be used to support the roll-out and implementation of these technologies.

Sustainable Development Goals and the impact of Standardization

The SDGs are emerging as a clear focal point galvanizing the global community to action.

IEC is convinced that technology, and specifically electrotechnical solutions based on IEC standards, are key to helping nations achieve the SDG targets by 2030. The webinar will give a status update on the current work undertaken in IEC on SDGs, focusing on how the standardization process and standards evolve to reflect the significance of SDGs in IEC standards. As part of the webinar, a few case studies will also be shared, and 15 minutes will be dedicated to a live Q&A session.
