The European Lighthouse programme gathers an unprecedented number of cities in driving the smart and sustainable city movement in Europe and beyond. These cities and their private and academic partners worked on implementing a series of interlinked smart solutions in the field of energy, ICT and mobility. The first three projects of this programme: GrowSmarter, Remourban and Triangulum are now coming to an end and will share the results of their implementation models on this occasion.
Key challenges for Smart and Sustainable Cities are to provide solutions to significantly increase cities’ overall energy and resource efficiency, resulting in a better quality of life for their citizens, higher competitiveness, new job opportunities and economic growth.
By organising a session in the context of the European Week of Cities and Regions, the three projects will show the impacts achieved in terms of energy efficiency, smart mobility, ICT interconnectivity, governance and social acceptance and will provide policy makers and experts with valuable insights for replication in other European cities and regions.
