The Smart Cities Stakeholder Platform essentially promotes innovation and accelerates the development and market deployment of energy efficiency and low-carbon technology applications in the urban environment. The Platform supports the EU towards its goal of an 80% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and the Europe’s primary energy technology policy, the SET-Plan.
The second Smart Cities Annual Conference will take place on 5th and 6th June in the city of Budapest. After the 2012 launch event in Brussels, this year’s Smart Cities Annual Conference wants to affirm itself as a unique occasion for cities and solutions providers to meet and discuss the future shape of the European urban landscape.
In the scope of the 2013 Annual Conference, we will aim at defining the developing path of the Key Innovations; the outcome of the Working Groups’ activity.
The programme of the Smart Cities Annual Conference is rich and diversified: it alternates keynote speeches with workshops and networking sessions. The first day is fully devoted to discussing Key Innovations among the relevant stakeholders: technology providers on one side and cities as users on the other, with particular attention to matchmaking possibilities. The second day focuses instead on discussing achievements and developments of the Platform itself.
