Tuesday 11 and Wednesday ​12 April (next week) see the kick off of “SmarterCitiesNOW” – a 3-year collaboration programme between the UK and Nordics, led by London and Copenhagen, with focus on Sustainable Urban Development​ ​at Ravensbourne​ on the Greenwich Peninsula​ in London​.

Participants include stakeholders from across the SmartCities ecosystem from the UK and Nordics​. The aim of SmarterCitiesNOW is to create a forum ​where Smart Cities ​thinkers and do’ers come together to share know-how, experience and learning, and collaborate on projects and solutions​, to create synergies for all, ​rather than reinvent the wheel in different cities.

The launch in London 11-12 April kicks off a programme of collaboration activities to run between April and October, with follow-up event and launch of the next 6m programme @BLOXHUB in Copenhagen 11-12 October. ​

A key part of the programme is the SmarterCitiesNOW​ Solution challenge. If you’re a startup/scaleup working on Smart City solutions, come​ along on​ 11-12 ​April ​and join the SmarterCitiesNOW Solution challenge ​for ​a chance to win exciting prizes including a place on a Copenhagen accelerator/matc​h​making programme, a fellowship at a London sustainability programme and more.
