Smart cities, big data, platforms, and crowds, so what’s next? As we live in the age of abundance, how can we really take advantage of these resources? How are we going to face the future with technology and the crowds as the front liners? Find out and chime in your thoughts in our second round of #crowdchat with Theo Priestley on Tuesday, Oct 6 at 8 pm CET, giving you a sneak peek of the cutting edge content and discussions on the crowd economy. Theo will also join us at the CSWEurope2015 to moderate a panel on Day 3: Evolve Europe: Smart Cities & Mobility, October 21.

#Crowdchat is a great way to join in on the conversation, gain visibility and connect with like-minded professionals. If you are a thought leader, practitioner, influencer or merely curious why the crowd is an engine of growth in today’s open, connected and transparent world, tune in for these discussions:
