Last November, the Seville provincial Council hosted the third edition of Innovation and New Technologies Fair, organised by the public company Inpro (Sociedad Informática Provincial) and opened by the President of the Regional Government, Susana Díaz, and the President of the Seville Provincial Council, Fernando Rodríguez Villalobos. This event brought together the Public Administration and 25 of the most important and cutting-edge companies in the field of informatics and new technologies, to share three days of innovation and development.

Soltel participated in this meeting promoting Smart Cities, and did so presenting an application to search and manage parking spaces, based on the “Citizen as Sensor” technology. In its presentation, Soltel highlights some of the benefits of using it, such as energy and time savings, more security and less pollution.

The main objective of this event, very important for the digital world and for Seville, was to launch a series of actions in different Programs to universalize e-Administration in the province and take it closer to new technologies and new information systems, in order to improve public local management. A better local management would deliver better public services, enhancing their efficiency and improving Sevillians quality of life, for instance, easing the way of carrying out formalities in local councils.

This fair opened a door for the most futuristic projects being developed in the region. Technologies like Cybersecurity, “Smart City” and electronic administration were the event main pillars, and also robotics and virtual reality had a main role, this last one especially important for the tourism sector.

It is worth stressing, and so did Susana Díaz in the media, the “Smart City” initiative that is allowing some municipalities of the Seville province to be pioneer and examples of the use of this new technology to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of public services, and doing so in sustainable manner.

We are glad to know that the Seville Provincial Council and informatics and technological companies work together and promote a more efficient and sustainable region, becoming a reference for smart cities.
