A sustainable future for Europe - Dream or reality?

Smart cities and climate targets: reducing cities' energy use with ICT.

Anna Kramers

Anna Kramers holds a Master of Science in Civil Engineering and a PhD in Environmental Strategic Analysis with a focus on smart cities and digitalization to achieve climate targets.

Anna has over 20 years of experience in the IT and telecom industry and is currently working as a researcher at KTH. She is the program director for the Mistra SAMS (Sustainable Accessibility and Mobility Services) research program. The program focuses on how digitalization can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, primarily from transport.

Josef Ramon Fontana
Head of Market Research, ITeC

Head of Market Research at ITeC (Spain) and editor of the Spanish country report for Euroconstruct.

ITeC does not follow the pattern of most Euroconstruct members, which are institutes or consulting agencies that make economic research and have a team that specializes in construction. Instead, ITeC is a construction specialist that has a team that tackles the economic side of this sector. Therefore, ITeC can help construction companies with their market strategy, but also with their environmental strategy, the quality strategy of their product portfolio or even with their product research and development.

Josep Fontana has realised that nearly 30 years of experience in the construction market is barely enough to understand what makes companies successful in a market as complex and volatile as this one. His tactic to deal with this complexity is looking in each research project for the story buried within that waits to be told.
