Carlos Moreno

Mayor of Paris’ special envoy for Smart Cities

Recognized specialist of the intelligent control of the complex systems, Carlos Moreno is a pioneer in the field of the intelligent cities with his vision of a Human Smart City, a living city, of which he is one of the initiators and the organizers on the world scene. 
Chairing the Scientific Committee of the International Forum of the Human Smart City, Carlos wants to contribute with that community to a vision of the Smart City of tomorrow as a citizen-centric city, a city which places people and life through services and uses at the heart of the issues.

Deeply committed to science, progress and creativity, he strives to bring together scientific disciplines and professionals in the innovation ecosystem ― from industry to start-ups ― with a focus on a cross-disciplinary approach.

In his approach to serve the general interest, he strives to build connections as intermediary between various worlds that often are far from each other. He also contributes to the dissemination and to the popularization of science, technology and their urban applications, chairing or participating in Scientific Councils, Committees of Program or events in the national or international medias.

He was awarded the rank of Chevalier of the Order of the Legion of Honour in Paris in 2010.

Since February 2015, Professor is the Mayor of Paris’ Special Envoy for Smart Cities.
Professor Moreno is also Associate Professor at the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, as well as Director and co-founder of the Chair «Entrepreneurship Territory Innovation».
