SMART & SUSTAINABLE URBAN FUTURES
15th November 2017 at the Smart Cities Expo, Barcelona
Room 1.2, 15:30 – 18:30
With many European and Chinese cities staking out bold city visions for 2030 and 2050, and rolling out ambitious demonstration projects on smart services and infrastructures, what is the next step in city-driven research and innovation?
EERA Joint Programme Smart Cities and the URBAN-EU-CHINA Innovation Platform on Sustainable Urbanisation invite you to participate in a World Café to discuss:
• Which challenges keep city planners up at night?
• What strategies and policies are key to developing opportunities for
smart sustainable cities?
• What is it like to live and work in a perfect smart sustainable city?
• Why are we not there yet, what is holding us back?
The outcomes of the workshop will feed in to the Research and Innovation Roadmaps for Smart Cities / Sustainable Urbanisation of the EERA Joint Programme Smart Cities (EU) and URBAN-EU-CHINA (EU-China cooperation), informing future priorities, funding and project opportunities in Europe and China.
