What is SmartCityX

SmartCityX is a global open innovation program in which large corporations representing various industries and startups from around the world collaborate to co-create high-value services and applications from the perspective of consumers, not just from the standpoint of industry and technology. This is a global open innovation program.

 

We will accelerate the study of business co-creation between large corporations and between large corporations and domestic and overseas startups, and promote DX from the consumer's perspective, which will be the driving force behind "Society 5.0 x New Normal. We aim to create a society in which people can make choices that meet their individual needs and realize a variety of happiness.

With a common vision of co-developing the "city of the future," SmartCityX takes a diverse, people-centric approach in identifying next-generation technologies that can enrich lives and create more equitable and inclusive communities.

SmartCityX places an emphasis on six core verticals:

 

1) Consumer Products & Service

2) Mobility

3) Smart Building

4) Energy, Resource & Sustainability

5) Connectivity & Infrastructure

6) Social Innovation

 

These pillars unite corporate and consumer interests and embody the hope we all share for making cities more livable, resilient and sustainable.
