Smart Cities and the Future Internet Workshop, EUROCITIES, Square de Meeus 1, Brussels. January 25th 2012
This is a unique one-day workshop which brings together EUROCITIES member cities, FIRE (Future Internet Research & Experimentation), the Smart City Portfolio projects under the Competitiveness and Innovation Programme (CIP) and ENoLL (European Network of Living Labs) to present views and results to open up the discussion on shaping the future ‘Smart Cities’ agenda, starting from the needs of the cities, their citizens and partner organisations.
The workshop also aims to create new linkages and enhance cooperation between different constituencies interested in Smart City development in order to help formulate policies for future problem solving and strategic actions, including collaboration on potential future projects.
In addition it provides an opportunity for those cities and partners already involved in Smart Cities Portfolio CIP projects to meet with other cities from the EUROCITIES Knowledge Society Forum (KSF) to discuss future collaboration, knowledge exchange and dissemination of results and best practice. It is being organised the day before the KSF meeting on Jan. 26th to maximise the opportunities for participation from KSF members.
