Expo 4


Eight European smart city projects have teamed up with the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC) and the Green Digital Charter (GDC) initiative to showcase their achievements in building a strong community of smart cities in Europe.

They will have a joint stand at the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona from 15 to 17 November.

Representatives and partners of Horizon 2020 ‘lighthouse’ projects GrowSmarter, REMOURBAN, Triangulum, REPLICATE, Sharing cities, and SmartEnCity, as well as supporting actions CITYkeys, ESPRESSO and GDC will be on hand to inform visitors, answer questions, and present their work in speaking sessions.

GrowSmarter, REMOURBAN and Triangulum are in their second year of implementation, while REPLICATE, Sharing Cities, and SmartEnCity were launched in 2016. The consortia of these projects implement their plans in demonstration areas with the active involvement of ‘follower’ cities. Forty-four cities participate in this work. By engaging citizens and exploiting synergies, the partners work together to improve urban services and infrastructure.

The EIP-SCC is a key EU initiative aimed at creating an open, collaborative marketplace for smart city solutions. It brings together around 5,000 partners – cities, industry, SMEs, banks, research organisations, and other actors – from all over Europe.

Supporting actions will also be represented at our stand: CITYkeys, which has developed key performance indicators for the measurement and transparent monitoring of smart cities and smart city projects; ESPRESSO, which develops a conceptual smart city information framework based on open standards; and the Green Digital Charter, a EUROCITIES initiative that commits cities to work together to deliver on the EU’s objectives of promoting the use of digital technologies and address the challenges of growth, sustainability and resilience.

The GDC team will host a cocktail reception in the evening on 16 November.
