Disruptive tech working group to look at smart cities
Following a positive response to the 2019 Thought Piece on Disruptive Technologies and Sustainability, the Fellows Working Group on Disruptive Technologies and the Digital Economy met again over the summer and agreed to take a deep dive, in collaboration with other IEMA networks, on the role smart cities could play in decarbonisation and sustainability.
Responding to member feedback calling for practitioner level insight on disruptive technologies, the group is currently seeking case study input for projects (completed or ongoing) that are connected to one of the four focus areas of the new briefing: the energy transition; food and smart agriculture; smart transportation; and green infrastructure. If you are interested in submitting, please email Marc Jourdan at [email protected] for more information.
A webinar on the role of blockchain in supporting business resilience and the transformation to sustainability took place on 23 September. The session provided an overview of blockchain, case study examples highlighting best practices, and perspectives from industry professionals on the potential of blockchain to support IEMA disciplines.
