Detecon FIWARE iHub Forum

Cooperation and Co-creation is our Strength! 

Detecon Fireware iHub Forum

We, the citizens, are the most important assets of our cities and communities. How can we work together to make them better places to live? At Detecon, we have been asking ourselves, like many others around the world, the most meaningful question: “How can we help to make our cities better places to live?”. We cannot say we have found THE answer, but for sure, cooperation, fostering innovation and co-creation engaging all stakeholders, seem to be the best starting point. And the FIWARE Foundation, with the establishment of its FIWARE iHubs, is providing an example that, where it has been implemented, is already showing encouraging success stories. Today we want to launch in Cologne one of these platforms for citizens, businesses, academia and urban administration cooperation which, we hope, will help us progressing in our attempt to make our towns and cities vital, thriving social and economic innovation ecosystems.

Come and join us for this first networking opportunity – and know this is just the beginning!
