Pragmatic advantages of green growth, Sharing Cities at CEEC 2017

29/11/2017 - 01/12/2017 (Bratislava)

We all share the romantic vision of a greener world, but investment and political progress in this area, it must be confessed, has gained such traction largely for more pragmatic reasons: the enormous potential for returns. The effect that pressure to go green has had on European innovation, competitiveness, technological advancement and efficiency will be the focus at this year’s SET Plan/Central European Energy Conference 2017, taking place in Bratislava.
Sharing some of the leaps and bounds that have been made by the lighthouse cities through the Sharing Cities project, programme director Nathan Pierce will speak in the Smart Cities and Communities Coordinators panel. Mr Pierce will demonstrate how knowledge sharing between cities across Europe has helped to develop innovative smart cities solutions and contributed to this continent’s competitive advantage.

For those looking to gain insight into how to manage inter project working groups to create innovative business models and replicate best practices, you may have missed the registration, but you can still tune in to the live feed here, where you can see Mr Pierce speaking on 29 November from 16:15 (UTC +01:00).
