Many organizations participate in the event, especially Department for International Trade of the United Kingdom, European Technology Chamber, citiesabc, openbusinesscouncil, cityzenith, Hanoi City Government, Ministry for Communities and Territories of Ukraine, Lviv City Council, ARK-i Labs, ARK-i Partners, XnTREE, and Billion Strong are participating as partners in the event.
Introduction of the host organization
World Smart Cities Forum (WSCF), the organizer of this event, is a non-profit company based in London, UK that is currently spreading the philosophy of people-centered smart cities in Ukraine, Vietnam, the UK and the US while implementing digital transformation with local governments. A pilot project master plan is being developed to demonstrate various technologies and services. In particular, as the core framework of smart cities in Ukraine, Vietnam, and Korea, the major themes of Smart Infrastructure, Environment & Governance, Digital Transformation, and Social Impact were established as a brownfield-type urban development project.
In addition, as a common denominator, the functions of data, AI, cloud, and blockchain are applied to the smart city theme, and based on this, a blueprint for building an innovative ecosystem where many tech startups are able to create digital contents, software, and hardware.
