Digital Regions at hypermotion

atene KOM is organising exhibition and conference

From 20 to 22 November 2018 atene KOM had an an active part at Hypermotion in Frankfurt (Main)/Germany organising it’s own exhibitor’s area combined with an attractive conference programme. The topic was “Digital Regions – Creating Progress”.
The Hypermotion trade fair focusses on digital transformation in the sectors mobility, logistics, transport and infrastructure.
Within the frame of the conference “s=mc² – Smart Mobility Conference and Communication” six atene KOM panels were dedicated to future development of rural areas. Entrepreneurs, representatives of the public sector and scientists discussed potentials of regional and local digital transformation. With the event, we leveraged synergies between industries, commerce, the healthcare sector, education and the craft sector and linked businesses to political opinion leaders, associations or municipalities.
Exhibition and congress both provided scope for current product developments and discussions on digitalisation and mobility in urban and rural areas. Further topics of “Digital Regions” were broadband infrastructure, from fibre to 5G, networking transportation systems and logistics in rural areas.

Conference programme

20 November 2018 – Digital Mobility Infrastructure

11:00Intermodal aspects of mobility in rural areasTo enable sustainable mobility in rural areas a focus on intermodality including a capable public transport is essential. Digitalisation plays an important role as it interlinks the different modes of transport.Jonas Koch (InnoZ - Innovation Centre for Mobility and Societal Change)
11:30Legal framework for the expansion of digital infrastructureDigital infrastructure is a requirement for mobility applications. This paper is about legal conditions for the implementation of digital infrastructure expansion.Felix Gartner (atene KOM)
12:00Digital infrastructure requirements for Smart CityStarting Smart City implementation - What are the infrastructural requirements? What is already available for municipalities (maybe without their knowledge)?Tim Wegemann (IFDI - Institute for Digital Infrastructure)
