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/matchmaking programme, a fellowship at a London sustainability programme and more.
