CxC Festival 2022

CxC logo

This annual event of the Open & Agile Smart Cities (OASC) network, brings the community of members and partners together, and is open for all to join

About this event

Join us for three days of engaging workshops and sessions on solutions, concerns and visions that cities and communities have come across on their digital transformation journey. CxC Festival 2022 brings the OASC community and new friends together – in a hybrid event format in Brussels, Belgium, and wherever in the world you are.

The hottest topics in the digital transformation as seen from the ground, from the cities and communities we all live in: data spaces, local digital twins, digital underpinnings of the green transformation, safety, security, trust, AI, standards and, of course: MIMs – Minimal Interoperability Mechanisms.

You can jump in and out of short, focused sessions, join the conversations in workshops and roundtables or simply reap the benefit of the learnings of your peers. All sessions are open for everyone.

We hope the health situation will allow us to meet with members and partners at the traditional dinner, and to go live on the ground in Brussels in front of an audience, but we're happy to have you join us online.
