Event description

Description

The year 2017 will be crucial for the completion of the Digital Single Market, and cities will play an important role in this process. The forthcoming implementation of the EU’s new digital laws and the launch of the Urban Agenda partnership on digital transition will have a major direct impact at local level.

On the occasion of the winter meeting of its knowledge society forum, EUROCITIES wishes to engage in a dialogue with ocials and representatives of the EU institutions and other stakeholders to make the most of the planned digital policies and initiatives. While assessing the real needs and priorities of cities related to urban digital transition, participants will also exchange views on current and future implementation challenges and obstacles.

The political debate in the morning will be followed by two parallel technical workshops dedicated to specic policy issues. Concrete cases, project examples, and initiatives will be cited to illustrate how cities can become smarter through the use of digital solutions.

The EUROCITIES Green Digital Charter (www.greendigitalcharter.eu) is one such initiative. It commits 51 European cities, representing almost 27 million citizens, to work together and deliver on the objectives of improving the quality of life in cities using digital solutions. The workshop participants will also develop recommendations to help local authorities and EU institutions jointly achieve their policy and project objectives.

The draft agenda is available at this link.
