The Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC), renewed for being the international summit to discuss about the link between urban reality and technological revolution, will take place in Barcelona (Spain) on November 15th – 17th 2016.
In this seventh edition, the Smart City Expo World Congress will gather the highest level of stakeholders in the context of urban development in order to give them the opportunity to network and share experiences and ideas that support the development of our cities.
In addition, the management team of the EIP-SCC Market Place, in collaboration with other Smart Cities projects funded by the European Commission, will be there to answer all the questions from the audience and give them advice on topics related to smart cities and communities.
Find below the list of Smart Cities projects sharing the stand with us:
- GrowSmarter brings together cities and industry to integrate and demonstrate ‘12 smart city solutions’ in energy, infrastructure and transport, to provide other cities with valuable insights on how they work in practice and opportunities for replication.
- Remourban aims at developing a sustainable urban regeneration model leveraging the convergence of energy, mobility and ICT to transform European cities into smart cities.
- Replicate (Renaissance of Places with Innovative Citizenship and Technology) is a European research and development project whose objective is to deploy integrated energy, mobility and ICT solutions in city districts.
- Sharing Cities seeks to develop affordable, integrated and commercial-scale smart city solutions by fostering international collaboration between industry and cities.
- SmartEnCity is a H2020 funded project which aims to develop a systematic approach for transforming European cities into sustainable, smart and resource-efficient urban environments in Europe.
- Triangulum is one of the three European Smart Cities and Lighthouse projects set to demonstrate, disseminate and replicate solutions and frameworks for Europe’s future smart cities. The flagships cities Manchester (UK), Eindhoven (NL) and Stavanger (NO) will serve as a test-bed for innovative projects focusing on sustainable mobility, energy, ICT and business opportunities.
- CITYkeys aims at developing and validating, with the aid of cities, key performance indicators and data collection procedures for the common and transparent monitoring as well as the comparability of smart city solutions across European cities.
- Green Digital Charter / Guidance project commits cities to reduce emissions through ICT and to promote progress in tackling climate change through the innovative use of digital technologies in cities.
- ESPRESSO focuses on the development of a conceptual Smart City Information Framework based on open standards. This framework will consist of a Smart City platform (the “Smart City enterprise application”) and a number of data provision and processing services to integrate relevant data, workflows, and processes.
The Smart City Expo World Congress will also serve as scenario for different side workshops, some of them organised by members of the EIP-SCC Market Place and its Action Clusters and Initiatives. One of them is the workshop ‘Accelerating Urban Transition: Tapping the Full Potential of Smart City and Community Pilots’, organised by JPI Urban Europe, ERA-NET Smart Cities and Communities and the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology, where Margit Noll, chair of the EIP-SCC Initiative on Scaling up and Replication of Smart City Plans, will pronounce the opening speech.
