EU Smart City projects featured at Expo World Congress Barcelona

 

Smart City projects from across Europe will be featured at the 7th Smart City Expo World Congress set to take place in Barcelona (Spain) between 14-16 November, 2017.

 

These smart city projects, also known as Lighthouse projects, are testing and implementing a range of innovative solutions in specific city districts with the aim of stimulating uptake and growth in the market and the transition to a more sustainable Europe.

 

The Expo, which takes place in Barcelona annually, brings together more than 17,000 visitors, 650 exhibitors and over 700 cities from across the world to share research, best practices and potential common solutions, achieved through effective collaboration. A mix of keynote speeches, discussion sessions and presentations make up the conference programme, with a wide range of topics under discussion.

 

The REMOURBAN team will be in Barcelona to participate in the ‘The Lighthouse Projects Stand’ (D450 - Hall P2, Level 0, Street D, Stand 450), which will showcase thirteen EU-funded projects and initiatives working together to shape the market of smart cities in Europe: EIP-SCC; Smarter Together; Replicate; My Smart Life; REMOURBAN; Espresso; EU Smart Cities Information System; SmartEnCity; Sharing Cities; Triangulum; Ruggedised; GrowSmarter and Green Digital Charter.

 

The stand will also host a number of discussion sessions which will cover a wide variety of topics, including some that are very close to home for REMOURBAN:

mobility, data & technology and sustainability. 

CARTIF’s Miguel García will represent the project and will be giving his insights at speaking session #9 on Smart City Strategies on 16 November 10:00-11:00. Joining him in Barcelona is Jeronimo Hinojosa, representing Valladolid Municipality. He is due to speak at session #3 on 14 November between 2 pm and 3 pm during where he will highlight the (city) data management strategies and urban sharing platforms. To completing the REMOURBAN team is Pablo Rivas from GMV who will give session #2 on measuring smart cities’ performance.
