Official Satellite Event of the Covenant of Mayors - Europe Ceremony
This event will officially kick off the City Coordinators Group, an initiative embedded in SCALE - European Smart and Lighthouse Cities Amplified. In partnership with the European Commission and CINEA, SCALE provides large-scale, long-term support for the 120 cities and 18 Lighthouse projects involved in the Horizon 2020 Smart Cities and Communities Lighthouse Group.
The City Coordinators Group (CCG) will bring together Lighthouse and Fellow cities from the H2020 Lighthouse group, and offer them opportunities to expand their network, find new project partners, discovering innovative solutions and getting inspiration, and eventually, advocate for their needs, at the EU level.
In line with the 2050 vision of the Covenant of Mayors, Lighthouse projects have been pushing the local transition to climate neutrality by implementing over 550 demonstrations of integrated, smart technological and social innovations in the domains of mobility, smart buildings, smart infrastructure, citizen engagement and data platforms, as well as in city governance.
Knowledge sharing, partnership-building and networking will be the keywords of this group.
This event will make the establishment of this group official and present a roadmap of activities.
Three guest Lighthouse Cities (Eindhoven, Valencia and Milan) will present innovative results of their Lighthouse projects and possible ideas and strategies to scale it up.
