Energising Cities: Innovations, Challenges & Solutions

23 September 2019 12 h 00 min 13 h 00 min

Triangulum is one of 14 European Smart Cities and Communities Lighthouse Projects (SCC1) funded by the European Union’s Research and Innovation Framework Programme Horizon 2020. Having started in February 2015, Triangulum is one of the first three projects completing this journey with its three Lighthouse Cities Manchester (UK), Eindhoven (NL) and Stavanger (NO), where innovative projects focusing on sustainable mobility, energy, ICT and business opportunities have been implemented and tested. The project consortium combines interdisciplinary experience and the expertise of 22 partners from industry, research and municipalities that share the same objective and commitment to develop and implement smart solutions and to replicate them in the three Fellow Cities Leipzig (D), Prague (CZ) and Sabadell (ES).

The five-year duration of this project is slowly coming to an end, resulting in numerous outcomes and lessons learned that we now want to share with the community and the public.

We therefore invite you to our international conference on “Energising Cities: Innovations, challenges & solutions”

On Monday, 23.09., we will start the conference with presentations by Triangulum’s Project Coordinator Trinidad Fernandez-Lopez and European Commission representatives. There will be two Key Notes by Steve Turner (Digital Cities Lead at Arup) and Martin Brynskov (Chair of Open & Agile Smart Cities, Director of the Centre for Digital Transformation of Cities & Communities and Associate Professor at Aarhus University). In the afternoon, we look forward to tell you about the replicable success stories from our three Lighthouse- and Fellow Cities including lessons learned and hands-on experiences and demonstrations from the people of Triangulum. Some of the topics to be discussed in interactive sessions will be climate change, governance, citizen engagement and investment & replication.

On Tuesday, 24.09., we are merging into the official Nordic Edge Expo and Conference 2019. In the afternoon, Triangulum is co-organising the yearly Nordic Edge session “Being a European Lighthouse City – A Journey from the Beginning to the End” where the two new SCC1 projects MAKING-CITY and +CityXChange will be introduced. Before handing over to them, Triangulum will tell you about its journey towards becoming truly smart cities.
