A variety of smart city projects from across Europe will be featured at the Smart City Expo World Congress, which takes place in Barcelona this week 14-16 November.


These smart city projects, also known as Lighthouse projects, are testing and implementing a range of solutions in specific city districts in a bid to stimulate uptake and growth in the market and the transition to a more sustainable Europe.


The Remourban team will be at the expo to participate in the Lighthouse projects stand (D450 -- hall P2, level 0, street D, stand 450), which will showcase 13 EU-funded projects and initiatives working together to shape the market of smart cities in Europe: EIP-SCC; Smarter Together; Replicate; My Smart Life; Espresso; EU Smart Cities Information System; SmartEnCity; Sharing Cities; Triangulum; Ruggedised; GrowSmarter; and Green Digital Charter.


The stand will also host a number of discussion sessions which will cover a range of topics including some that are close to home for Remourban: mobility, data and technology and sustainability.


Miguel García from research and technology centre, Cartif, will represent the project and will be giving his insights at speaking session #9 on smart city strategies on 16 November 10:00-11:00.


Joining him in Barcelona is Jeronimo Hinojosa, representing Valladolid municipality.


He will speak at session #3 on 14 November between 2pm and 3pm during which he will shine the spotlight on (city) data management strategies and urban sharing platforms. Completing the Remourban’s team effort is Pablo Rivas from GMV who will attend the session #2 on measuring smart cities’ performance.
