+CityxChange at the Smart City Expo World Congress 2022

From November 15th-17th, you can find us at Booth B21 in Hall 2 of the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona! As one of the 30 projects of European Smart Cities and Communities (ESCC) under the umbrella of the European Commission, we are looking forward to sharing our experiences and learnings on cross-cutting topics related to climate neutrality, digital solutions, citizen engagement, urban governance, and smart city finance.

Spearheaded by Scalable Cities Secretariat and Smart Cities Marketplace, ESCC represents the joint presence of partners that are collectively leading the way and piloting cutting-edge innovative solutions with the aim to replicate them across cities in Europe on the path to climate neutrality.

The focus of the event is a joint booth that will host a program of small sessions organized by the attending projects. Projects and initiatives will also take part in 4 large sessions, called the agora sessions that will include a larger and more diverse audience.

In addition to a constant presence at the ESCC booth, find +CxC in the following sessions:

  • Tuesday 15-11 [10-11:30]: Trondheim participates in a booth session titled, “What’s in it for cities” about how to support collaboration, innovation, financing, and knowledge dissemination in project cities.
  • Wednesday 16-11 [10-10:30]: +CxC collaborates in the booth session titled, “Governance & digitalization. Digitalization at local level – How to get all cities and communities involved, making use of past and present projects?”
  • Wednesday 16-11 [15-16:30]: Annemie Wyckmans speaks at a booth session on “Local collaborative governance”, about new ways of stakeholder engagement.
  • Thursday 17-11 [9:15-10]: Dirk Ahlers speaks at the Central Agora in a session titled, “How do we reach climate neutrality in cities by 2030?” This session explores the European pathways from positive energy districts to climate neutrality.
