This year’s VDE Congress 2014 revolved around the theme of “Smart Cities – Intelligent solutions for life in the future”. Reason enough for for Paolo Sebben to give a lecture entitled “Efficient ICT infrastructure – the foundation for a Smart City”. Paolo Sebben explained what he means by a Smart City, where the synergies are to be found and where the starting points are.
