Stakeholder seminar and brokerage event
– Making cities work
Public authorities as transformation agents
How can public authorities act as transformation agents, catalysing change by cooperating with researchers, business and social innovators? How can cities apply knowledge gained in testbeds and innovation projects in their own organisations and the city at large? The seminar will showcase learning examples from European cities and invite participants to influence implementation of the JPI Urban Europe strategic research and innovation agenda.
Break-out sessions target five topics:
• Public sector as a transformation agent
• Cities as urban data laboratories
• Enhancing impact and scaling up solutions
• Social innovation and social entrepreneurship in the circular economy
• Sustainable accessibility
Target groups: Urban policy makers and practitioners from public and private
sector on city level, researchers.
City representatives, business actors, researchers and NGO’s are invited to
discuss major European city challenges and how to solve them. Help influence
the call for Innovation Projects that JPI Urban Europe will launch in November
2017: Joint Innovation Action Making cities work supporting research-based
innovation solutions in cities. Read more and registration
Registration opens March 29 and closes May 15.
