WS3: Smart City solutions: EPIC best practice (Cloud in the City)
What is the Workshop About? : How can the EPIC Smart City solution help my City? This workshop, presented by the EC-Funded ‘European Platform for Intelligent Cities’ (EPIC) Project, provides attendees with a crash course in how using the EPIC platform’s ‘Smart City in a Box’ can revolutionize the way you create, procure and operate smart city services in your city or municipality.
What Will I Learn? : The EPIC Cloud and the City Workshop will focus on giving attendees three takeaways:
1. Understanding the Potential of EPIC – Attendees can expect a grounding in how the EPIC Solution can change the way in which your city creates, adapts and uses ‘Smart City’ services
2. Working with EPIC – Attendees can expect a thorough introduction to the revolutionary EPIC Platform system of lightweight web services including demonstration of running services
3. Integrating EPIC – Attendees can expect practical advice on using the EPIC platform in your city from the project’s step-by-step Roadmap for Smart City service delivery
In addition to the three takeaways above, the session will also provide attendees with a unique chance to get hands-on with the EPIC platform and explore existing services currently running on the platform. EPIC’s unique workshop allows attendees to put what you’ve learned at the workshop into practice in your own city and change the way you create and deliver services for good.
Who Should Attend? : This workshop is aimed primarily at Living Labs, City Administrators, Community Champions and Citizen Engagement Specialists.
