    With the aim of attracting all audiences, different activities have been programmed throughout the city and with a variety of formats, such as dialogues, workshops, cultural and city activities or family activities.
    All in all to bring different profiles to the concept of smart city. The program proposes a tour based on three thematic itineraries arranged on a temporary scale: “Transforming the city today”, “Transforming the city tomorrow” and “Transforming the city of the future.”
    Ca l’Alier will host the inauguration of the SCW on November 11 at 18:30. This old factory in Poblenou, which is the headquarters of the Urban Innovation Center of Barcelona, ​​will also be the epicenter of programming. Check all scheduled activities here.
