Milan Digital Week is a 5-day event full of activities, events, conferences, and workshops centred around the vision of the city as a platform that coordinates all the forces, diversity, and interactions between individuals and communities.

Copernico Milano is dedicating the entire morning of 16th March to the SMART CITIZEN and new technologies that can help citizens get to know their cities more intimately while improving their quality of life. Planet is participating in the workshop titled “Smart Citizen: Startups and digital transformation in urban areas” beginning at 11 am. It will bring together a group of innovative startups that are working towards creating value-added services for urban areas.

Planet Idea’s smart city Competence Centre has developed a digital platform and an app that can govern the processes and services of an intelligent district. The digital platform is characterised by an Open API system which allows access by third-party companies, such as the startups that will be present at the workshop. They can develop services for citizens which address all aspects of the urban environment, for example, administration, training, economic activities, social welfare, mobility, security, sports, and leisure activities.

Admission is free, but participants are required to register here.
