Labinar & after work: Data science for liveable cities

25 januari 2024

Regeringsgatan 29, 111 53 Stockholm, Stockholm

How can we use data to improve the cities we live in? Join this exclusive evening of knowledge-sharing between KTH and MIT, as the Senseable Stockholm Lab opens its doors to showcase two of their ongoing projects.

The Senseable Stockholm Lab (SSL) is a collaboration between the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and the City of Stockholm, in partnership with the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce. The SSL conducts research aimed at increasing the understanding of both the natural and built environment in cities by addressing climate, social and urban development-related challenges. 

Every six weeks, the SSL holds a closed meeting called a ”labinar,” where the research teams in Stockholm and Boston come together virtually to discuss their ongoing projects within the lab. This time, the labinar will be open to those interested in learning more about the lab’s latest research. Join us on Thursday, January 25 from 16.30–17.30 for an evening of knowledge-sharing and discussion. Doors will open at 16, with an after work to follow the presentations where there will be an opportunity to meet the researchers and others involved in the lab.
