On October 8, during the European Week of Regions and Cities in Brussels, the first three projects in the Horizon2020 funded Smart City Lighthouse Programme, REMOURBAN, Triangulum and GrowSmarter, will present their key findings at a joint event in Brussels, Belgium. REMOURBAN, a leading initiative in the field of smart cities worldwide, is led by the CARTIF Technology Centre.
In this event, the three smart city projects mentioned will host the session ‘From dream to reality: sharing experiences from leading European Smart Cities’, showing the impacts achieved in terms of energy efficiency, smart mobility, ICT, governance and social acceptance. This will provide policy makers and experts with valuable insights for replication in other European cities and regions.
The session on October 8 will feature practitioners from cities such as Manchester, Eindhoven, Stavanger, Cologne, Valladolid, Seraing, Barcelona, Nottingham and Stockholm as well as political representatives from selected cities to discuss the European impact on local implementation. The event will take place at the Committee of the Regions, room VM3, Rue Van Maerlant 2 in Brussels from 14.30 – 17.00.
Lighthouse Programme currently consists of 40 European Lighthouse cities, leading the way to a smarter, more sustainable Europe by deploying and testing new solutions in energy, transport and digital technology that will be replicated in new Fellow cities.
The REMOURBAN lighthouse project in particular, coordinated by CARTIF, has successfully developed and validated a comprehensive and sustainable urban regeneration model, addressing the implementation in the cities of innovative technological solutions in the energy, transport and ICT sectors, with the objective of accelerating the transformation of European cities into intelligent urban areas for social progress and environmental regeneration, as well as in areas of attraction and engine of economic growth. The three demonstration cities of REMOURBAN are Valladolid, Nottingham (United Kingdom) and Tepebasi (Turkey).
