Are you looking to make investments in the area of mobility, ICT or energy? Is your city thinking of redeveloping certain areas? Are you a provider of smart city products or services?

The European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC) is hosting a matchmaking event for policy makers, and city and regional representatives looking to connect with peers and start discussions with business representatives from the smart city community.

Taking place in Brussels (Belgium) on 20 February – back-to-back with the Covenant of Mayors Investment Forum – brings together city and regional representatives, businesses, and investors and focuses on exploring and shaping opportunities for persons involved in smart cities projects.

This is the first in a series of matchmaking activities. It offers a unique knowledge-sharing opportunity for those in charge of policy-making and those representing cities and regions, and gives cities the opportunity to offer advice to peers, learn from best practices, present projects, and find investors and Smart City Solutions.

The EIP-SCC offers a forum for discussion, assists in the development of innovative urban ideas, and brings together urban innovators, developers, investors, and private equity.

The event is promoted by the European Commission's EIP-SCC Marketplace initiative:

Why should you join?

This event fosters much-needed collaboration between city and regional representatives, policy makers, business representatives, and investors.
