The Innovation Conference is an annual event arranged every September by either of the University’s two profile areas, Health Innovation and Smart Cities and Communities. This year’s innovation conference will be held on September 23. It will be a digital conference in English. The focus of the conference is small and medium-sized cities and the development, challenges and opportunities of the smart city. Compared to big cities and megacities, the small and medium-sized cities normally have their own specific conditions to consider, which requires specific investigations and solutions.
