The value of spaces in the digital revolution

Facing the complexity of technological processes respecting economic, natural and social ecosystems

The seminar intends to face the issue of the value of spaces in the digital revolution. The spread of information and communication technologies has outlined the birth and development of new models, strategies and paradigms, whose common denominator is the high degree of automation and interconnection, the founding element of that epochal turning point known as the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”. One of the main directions of this phenomenon is represented by the design of physical or digital environments in which human beings and technological systems interact in increasingly open, connected, coordinated and intelligent ecosystems.
Efficiency and eco-sustainability will be crucial factors in this direction.
Attention will be paid to the following topics:

ENVIRONMENTAL ECOSYSTEMS: efficiency and energy saving; waste management and material consumption; green economy and circular economy; sustainable urban planning; sustainable mobility;

ECONOMIC ECOSYSTEMS: entrepreneurship; smart working; incubators and research centers;

SOCIAL ECOSYSTEMS: health; safety; smart education; e-democracy / e-government; tourism.

The seminar, which will take place in mixed mode (presence and online), is addressed at scholars of issues relating to real estate valuation, urban development, project evaluation and the sociology of the environment and the territory.
