This brokerage event on 11 July 2012 offered an opportunity for EUROCITIES member cities to develop consortia and project ideas ahead of the Smart Cities call for proposals in the 2013 Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) Work Programme, expected to be published on 10 July. This event was organised back-to-back with the Commission’s Smart Cities & Communities stakeholder platform event on 10 July 2012. It also complemented the official European Commission FP7 Energy Research information day, which will took place on 4 July 2012.

The event gave participants the opportunity to:

  • Learn more about the call from a representative from the Commission
  • Meet other European cities interested in the call
  • Network with project partners from all over Europe in view of developing joint projects
  • Interact with experts from EUROCITIES office for fine-tuning your project idea

During the event participants were able to present their city profile/project idea, which contributed to proactive matchmaking between potential projects.
