Look forward to the panel discussion “Let’s talk: Status Quo and future ambitions” where we reflect on European and German smart city initiatives and networks and learn how they support municipalities in their challenges with digitalisation, the digital single market and urban development.

Take the chance and get in touch with other municipalities, ministries and stakeholders at European level, share your experience on smart city projects, tell us your needs to step forward and expand your network. Be an active part in the event and register for our afternoon programme: In three parallel sessions we would like to discuss with you where your challenges lie and how we can support you.

The event is organised by the German Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community and the Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development.
