On 14 October, during the Brussels open days, we will organize our fourth brokerage event on smart cities, which will focus on the 2016 Horizon 2020 Smart Cities & Communities call for funding.

Merce GRIERA-I-FISA, DG CONNECT, will present the Horizon 2020 Smart Cities & Communities 2016 call and the lesson learnt from the previous round of smart cities applications.

Marie YEROYANNI and Ugo GUARNACCI, DG Research & Innovation, will look at the topic of nature based solutions and smart cities, the focus of the 2016 call for projects.

In the afternoon, will follow a Green Digital Charter technical training focusing on ICT solutions.

The event, third of its kind, follows a successful series of brokerage events attracting more than 100 city officials: see here for the documents and results of the 2014 event and here for the 2013 event.

The Horizon 2020 Smart cities calls are expected to be officially published in December 2015, but the draft version of the document has already been made available on the HORIZON 2020 website.
