Home/Events/Smart City: Transferring the Amsterdam Approach to the Brazilian context


Amsterdam is widely recognized for its leading Smart City: its population participates in solutions, governance models and social inclusion. The Live Learning course “Smart City: transferring the Amsterdam approach to the Brazilian context” was developed by Insper’s Arq.Futuro City Lab in partnership with Amsterdam University of Applied Science (AUSA) and Amsterdam Smart City (ASC) and will be held from 9 am to 11 am (BRT) on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from November 17 to December 3, 2020.

In the webinar Smart City: Transferring the Amsterdam Approach to the Brazilian context, participants will be able to better understand technological trends, discover opportunities for metropolitan improvements (on topics such as mobility, energy and governance) and learn how to organize and scale up Smart City projects.

For the discussion, we will gather Cornelia Dinca, Amsterdam Smart City and Guido van Os, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. Tomas Alvim Insper Teacher will carry out the institutional opening and mediation of the discussion.
