The EIP-SCC is Europe's key initiative to create a common Market Place for Smart City solutions. In this context, the morning session will convene high-level speakers from city halls, leading companies and the European Commission to examine achievements of Smart Cities in Europe, actions to increase synergies between policies and funds to boost demand and good practice to create solutions that meet cities’ and citizens’ needs.
The event will be opened by Violeta Bulc, European Commissioner for Transport, and Günther H. Oettinger, European Commissioner for Digital Economy & Society. The morning session is free to all participants of the 2015 Metropolitan Solutions, but pre-registration is required.
In the afternoon, there will be closed meetings of the Action Clusters and will offer participants the opportunity to work on their joined up actions.
If you are interested in understanding the status-quo of Smart Cities in Europe and are eager to learn more about future developments and business opportunities in this vibrant field of action, attendance to the assembly is highly recommended.
