During this event there will be a Tech Jam on March 24-25 with a public working group to develop an “IoT-Enabled Smart City Framework.”

It is a great opportunity for Vincent Demortier, Coordinator of OASC France and Angel City Investor to the OASC global initiative, to represent the Open & Agile Smart Cities Initiative and to interact with cities outside Europe to promote the advantages of being a Open & Agile Smart City.
