Please register here.

Registration will be open until 4 June.

The format of the workshop is designed to help you learn leading innovative city projects throughout Europe. You can choose from several round tables, whether you are interested in topics of energy, e-mobility or ICT, you will always find the project of your interest. Representatives of lighthouse projects will give you the necessary insights into the implementation process as well as into the technical details of their projects. If everything goes smoothly, the replication workshop could be your first step towards a possible successful replication in your city. The replication workshop is intended primarily for city representatives, but if you are from innovative businesses or academia, you are welcome on board as well.

There will be two rounds of workshops each consisting of four round tables. One innovative smart solution will be discussed at each round table. New round means new smart solutions. Each round table will consist of 30 minutes of presentation by the city and 30 minutes of discussion. One round table will have up to twelve participants.

Replication workshop will be "project focused". Meaning that one concrete selected smart solution will be discussed during the round table. While some round tables will focus more on technical aspects of selected smart solution, others can be devoted more to the implementation processes – governance aspects, used business models, public procurement, citizen engagement and data usage. Each round table will be facilitated. Each table will have a facilitators, who will also collect information on the most important findings.

Participation in the workshop will be available for all visitors of the URBIS fair, requiring prior registration. During the registration the preference will be given to the city representatives (decision makers, city experts, politicians etc.). Attendees will be able to choose from round tables and will receive basic information about selected smart solutions in advance of the event.
