This year’s Smart Cities Marketplace Forum will be organised in collaboration with the Covenant of Mayors Office and the European Innovation Council and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency, among other partners, and will include a welcome and opening keynote by the European Commissioner for Energy, Kadri Simson.
A common interest is to build networks & capacity, exchange knowledge for the clean energy transition as well as on funding & financing and improve citizens’ quality of life by the integration of innovative and cleantech solutions in Europe, taking into account the measures outlined in the Commission’s REPowerEU communication, and how these can accelerate the delivery of the European Green Deal at the local level.
The Smart Cities Marketplace Forum aims to tackle common challenges and elaborate on good examples including best practices for collaboration between public and private partners as well as model cases in risk handling. This will be done with the help of the Matchmaking mechanism of the Marketplace and mainly (but not only) private financing, supplementing and supporting EU instruments.
We will also take stock and look ahead into the future of the Smart Cities Marketplace supporting a just and clean urban transition through engaging matchmaking activities, Action Cluster meetings, political discussions, high-level speakers, networking opportunities and interactive parallel sessions.
