Culture, coast side, coffee – on exchange in Croatia

Foreign country, foreign people, foreign culture, foreign language – wow, if I would have thought more about those points one and a half month back, I may have had more doubts when boarding the plane to Croatia on a very early Sunday morning end of May. Fortunately I didn’t, there definitely would have been no need for doubts. So here I am, sitting at the headquarter of Hrvatski Telekom, Deutsche Telekom’s Croatian subsidiary, enjoying the panorama of Zagreb and Sljeme, the mountain range which directly borders the Croatian capital in the north.

Smart city: When cities become smart, their citizens benefit

Ongoing urbanization is creating enormous challenges for cities. The world's population continues to grow, and more and more people are moving from rural areas to cities. While such migrations have been taking place for centuries, they have been accelerating in our day, as rural job markets continue to shrink. It is now expected that two-thirds of the world's population will be living in cities by the year 2050. Cities need to develop strategies for dealing with their continuing growth. This also means using available resources more efficiently, even as their budgets grow tighter and tighter. "Resources scarcities, demographic issues and climate change will become the key factors for cities," notes Prof. Elke Pahl-Weber in an article in the newspaper Der Tagesspiegel  (TU Berlin, Institute of Urban and Regional Planning). For cities, more people means more traffic, increased energy and drinking water consumption and higher waste production. While cities have long been wrestling with such growth-related issues, digitalization is offering new ways of addressing them; for example, data generated via digital applications can be used in creating "smart" solutions. Cities that seek to incorporate smart solutions within their urban infrastructures are referred to as "smart cities."
