Cities belong to their citizens; comprising an economic, social and cultural asset for which all are responsible of taking care of in order to assure the future of the following generations.
BY&FORCITIZENS conference on “Smart Regeneration of Cities and Regions” will provide a forum to gain comprehensive insights into the opportunities and challenges conferred by further development of Smart Cities and Communities initiatives across Europe. The overall aim is to review and better understand the steps that city leaders, delegates, policymakers and other relevant stakeholders around Europe take to transform their cities into great and attractive places in which to live and work, creating strong local ecosystems.
The event will gather local and national authorities, representatives from the European Commission and INEA, project coordinators and experts involved in smart city projects co-funded by Horizon 2020 and FP7 programmes of the EC. They will have the opportunity to share their experience and knowledge, discuss the challenges of the urban transformation and come up with innovative solutions. The format will be participatory and there will be keynote lectures, presentations, round tables and study tours.
