Barcelona Activa, present in the Smart City Expo World Congress
Barcelona Activa will be present, for the third year in a row, in the Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC), a major international event about smart cities, which will take place in the Barcelona Trade Fair between 14th and 16th November. More than 700 cities will be participating, with more than 600 exhibitors and 420 speakers from the industry of smart urban solutions.
Within this framework, a new edition of SynergyS has been organised, the networking activity in which major companies propose a series of challenges and the participants (entrepreneurs) propose their solutions, services and products, in such a way that synergies are produced and business opportunities emerge. This will be on 15th November.
The day after that, the Job MarketPlace will take place, the recruiting space where companies from the sector can get in contact with possible candidates for their vacancies. Beforehand, these companies will have published the profiles that they are interested in covering and Barcelona Activa will have carried out a pre-selection of the candidates who fit the profiles requested.
Also within this context, Barcelona and New York have posed a joint challenge for start-ups and innovative companies to propose technological solutions that facilitate the mobility of blind people in the streets of major cities. The finalists of this challenge will be made known during the SCEWC.
Furthermore, as in the previous year, Barcelona Activa will have a stand in which 18 companies will be represented from 5 different fields: housing, mobility, sustainability (energy, ecology), participation and social development (health, education, fabrication, inclusion, skills acquisition).
