Open data and interoperability in the Smart City ecosystem

Interoperability, i.e. the ability of networks, systems and solutions to exchange information and communicate effectively, is one of the key elements in smart cities. The interoperability platforms make it possible to systematize the databases of institutions and companies with a view to collaboration and integration.
The workshop aims to explore the benefits and development potential of interoperability platforms and open data in both the public and private sectors.

The decarbonisation of the plastics supply chain

Italy is the second largest consumer of plastic in Europe: in 2020 5.9 million tons of plastic were consumed in our country, equal to almost 100 kg per person. Plastics are used in many applications, including packaging (which covers 42% of the national plastic consumption), construction and automotive.
The main solutions for decarbonising the plastics supply chain include reducing consumption, increasing recycling rates, replacing fossil raw materials with vegetable ones. These solutions involve significant choices in the policies, management models and behavior of the operators.
The workshop will allow a comparison with representatives of academia, the public and private sector, institutions and civil society on the principles and next steps for a strategy for decarbonising the plastics supply chain.

Defining the Urban Agenda for Sustainable Development

In the event, the results of the research project coordinated by GREEN Bocconi and carried out with Università degli Studi di Roma Tre will be presented. The project has been financed by the Italian Ministery of Ecological Transition.
