Success stories- From smart city projects to sustainable urban futures
This event offers good practices and learnings from 15 transnational and transdisciplinary research- and innovation projects on Smart Cities and Communities which JPI Urban Europe funded with the support of the European Commission in the ERA-NET Cofund Smart Cities and Communities call. Event participants will have the opportunity to learn from success stories of the projects and listen to involved partners who have practiced co-creation across cultural and sectorial boundaries. In these projects, actors from academia, the business sector, the general public and city officials have innovated ways to tackle the urban issues of behavioural change and culture related to energy consumption, ecological footprints, socio-technical integration, transportation, and more. The event will take place on Wednesday 12 February, 15.00-15.45 (Urban Library 33 in the offical WUF10 agenda)
