Wondering what the ASCEND project has been up to?

November brought a highlight as ASCEND proudly participated in the joint EU representation at the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona from 7 to 9 November. Alongside 30 other projects, initiatives and DGs, the event provided a fantastic opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals, engage in knowledge sharing, and learn from other projects’ experiences. 

In addition to our booth presence, ASCEND actively participated in two sessions alongside Scalable Cities, NetZeroCities, BUILDSPACE, NEUTRALPATH as well as ATELIER, +CityxChange and EXCESS projects. 

We discussed the role of Positive Energy Districts in achieving climate neutrality, cities' needs to achieve such a goal, and how we can replicate the PED concept more effectively. 

A big thank you to all our partners and attendees for such an inspiring and insightful couple of days. And while the expo might be over, ASCEND’s journey has just begun!
