  2. 2. Bologna and Emilia Romagna Bologna is not a “Learning city” as Unesco definition state for but.. By the way Bologna is a “Learner”City!
  3. 3. Learning Cities: a new challenge Learner city today means facing the challenges that the urban dimension face us. Urban intelligence is an indispensable prospect in view of achieving the goals of the 2030 UN Agenda. In Learner cities and territories, information and communication technologies are declined into innovative platforms and services that improve quality of life, levels of employment and competitiveness. In an sentence: digital transformation
  4. 4. Urban and cities Digital Transformations There are multiple dimensions on which the "digital transformation" of urban realities takes place and made possible by digital infrastructures: The creation of intelligent networks for functional services (energy, water cycle, waste, mobility) The construction of monitoring systems for environmental contexts (safety, air quality, traffic) The growth of social interactions (work, consumption, access to services, participation, social relations). In a word:
  5. 5. A strategy for European and Mediterranean Country The Emilia Romagna Region is working to create a hub where machines, infrastructures and skills are able to manage huge amounts of data, which will be made available for the development not only of Emilia-Romagna, but of the whole of Europe and in particular of the Mediterranean area. HOW?

Highlights:Clust-ER ASSOCIATIONS Clust-ER Associations are communities of public and private bodies (research centres, businesses, training bodies) that share ideas, skills, tools, and resources to support the competitiveness of the most important production systems in Emilia-Romagna. It is a competitiveness that no longer relies on the ability of individual research centres or businesses to operate on the global market, but increasingly on the ability of the entire local system to be innovative and attractive.
