PARKGENE on “How Smart Cities focus on the citizen”
In our effort to establish our authority in Smart Mobility PARKGENE’s COO, Manos Macromallis attended the event of Syn-polis, showcasing the PARKGURU Group and specifically how our P2P parking project on blockchain, PARKGENE, could support the municipality of Papagos-Holargos in Attica region in its attempt to solve the huge problem of parking in order to improve the daily transportation woes of its citizens.
Manos Macromallis also joined the public discussion panel on smart, citizen-centered cities, with distinguished members from the municipal authorities and executives from well-established companies in the industry of Internet of Things (IoT) also taking part.
“PARKGENE platform offers a holistic approach to the parking industry and because of that helps every city to be more green and smart.
