"In 2017, the Swedish government initiated a project to create safer and more climate-smart cities using geofencing technology. Due to this we have a national arena in place for strategic collaboration. The workshop today is an important step towards intensifying the collaboration, on matters such as harmonisation of policy and technology on the international level", says Lina Moritz Program Manager at CLOSER, that coordinates the Swedish R&I platform for geofencing.
