The event presents and discusses the different aspects related to the application of Circular Economy concepts in urban environments supported by the widely-used modern technologies, as Internet of Things and Big Data analytics. The implementation and managment of such innovative functionalities requires coordination efforts among the companies providing services in a city and the local Public Authorities, even thanks to the sharing of material and information flows. Recent experiences and initiatives from different countries will be discussed with the aim of identifying best practices to be implemented in favor of the citizens.

Targeted Audience: all actors of the value chain, including technology and service companies, Public Authorities, stakeholders Associations, Utilities, research institutes and citizens.
