Dimitar Hristov

This article is based on a study done so far on the Project Smart Skills for Smarter Cities (Skills4Cities), launched by the Cluster Sofia Knowledge City at the end of 2020 with the support of the Program Erasmus +. It reflects the work of the partnership till now and is a first attempt to draw some important conclusions the partners came to regarding the so-called skills gaps in the field of smart cities projects.


Disruptive technologies for smart cities - Virtual Reality

This is the last article from the series the KISMC team, a member of the Cluster, started in 2020, based on the outputs produced by partners under the project Smart technologies by design (Smart by Design). It was found that there are many digital and/or data-based technologies that are to a large extend applicable in the real conditions of the city and contribute to its coping with public problems or challenges. They are used in diverse areas like transport, energy, utility, urban, health, etc.

Hong Kong is a vibrant startup community

After our decision to activate a new concept of innovative startup accelerator, Cluster Sofia Knowledge City started looking around for good practices over the world.

The case of Hong Kong has become interesting to us because Hong Kong has recently become an important start-up center, supported by government initiatives such as InvestHK, Cyberport, and Hong Kong Science and Technology Park.

These organizations are very open and friendly for the EU-based companies and in a short time, they became our partners.
