SAVE THE DATE for the international conference of Triangulum: Energising Cities: Innovations, Challenges & Solutions

The conference will take place 23-24 September in Stavanger, Norway. We are thus merging directly into the official Nordic Edge Expo & Conference.
Having started in February 2015, Triangulum is one of the first three projects completing its journey towards becoming a truly smart city with its three Lighthouse Cities Manchester (UK), Eindhoven (NL) and Stavanger (NO) and its three Fellow Cities Leipzig (D), Prague (CZ) and Sabadell (ES). The five-year duration of this project is thus slowly coming to an end, resulting in numerous outcomes and lessons learnt that we now want to share with the smart city community and the public.


On Monday, 23.09., we will start the conference with presentations by Triangulum's Project Coordinator Trinidad Fernandez-Lopez and European Commission representatives. There will be two Key Notes by Steve Turner (Digital Cities Lead at Arup) and Martin Brynskov (Chair of Open & Agile Smart Cities, Director of the Centre for Digital Transformation of Cities & Communities and Associate Professor at Aarhus University). 

In the afternoon, we look forward to telling you about the replicable success stories from our six Lighthouse- and Fellow Cities including lessons learnt and hands-on experiences and demonstrations from the people of Triangulum. Some of the topics to be discussed in interactive sessions will be climate change, governance, citizen engagement and investment & replication.


On Tuesday, 24.09., we are merging into the official Nordic Edge Expo and Conference 2019. In the afternoon, Triangulum is co-organising the Nordic Edge session “Being a European Lighthouse City – A Journey from the Beginning to the End” where the two new SCC1 projects MAKING-CITY and +CityXChange will be introduced. Before handing over to them, Triangulum will present its main outcomes and learnings and talk about best practices regarding monitoring and evaluation.
