The Scottish Cities Alliance is leading a consortium of Smart Cities to the European Week of Regions and Cities Conference in Brussels.

The Smart Cities – Smart Ambitions workshop “Inter-city approaches to funding and delivering Smart Ambitions” aims to build relationships in a bid to achieve collective smart ambitions.

The partnership involves more than 20 cities from countries including Denmark, Basque Country in Spain, Finland, Poland and Scotland and is supported by the Open and Agile Smart Cities (OASC) initiative.

The aim of the event will focus on simplifying the European Structural Investment Funds and provide the opportunity for cities within a member state to deliver their collective Smart Cities’ ambitions.

The workshop will be held at Scotland House in Brussels on 11th October 2016 as part of the European Week of Regions and Cities. It will look to build upon the collective experience of city partnerships across a number of member states to adopt an inter-city approach to the Smart Cities agenda.

Registration for the Smart Cities, Smart Ambitions event opens on the 8th July – visit the EWRC website for further details.
