The annual General Assembly of the EIP-SCC: "Towards a Joint Investment Programme for Smart Cities" will be held in Brussels, on October 12th 2017, with a clear focus on stimulating joint investment in the smart cities market, building towards a coordinated plan to make that real in the market at scale.
Our ambition is to increase the extent to which the Marketplace provides an effective matchmaking function - bringing cities, industry, and investors together - and the General Assembly plays a central role in reinforcing this strategy. We encourage Cities of all sizes seeking to implement smart solutions; Industrial players that bring innovative solutions and/or manage city services particularly related to energy, transport and ICT; as well as Investors and Financiers of such projects and services, to join the discussions.
Event moderator Paul Timmers, previous Director Digital Society, Trust and Cyber Security at DG CONNECT, will be joined by European Commissioners from the sectors concerned, actively involved in the debate to share their thoughts and to help to make the Marketplace the arena where smart solutions are developed and implemented in European cities.
Keynote Speakers include: Violeta Bulc, European Commissioner for Transport; Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner in charge of Digital Economy and Society; Maroš Šefčovič, VP of the European Commission, in charge of Energy Union; and Markku Markkula, First Vice-President EU Committee of the Regions. Other speakers and moderators include Stephanie Trpkov (World Bank), Deputy Director-General Khalil Rouhana (Communications Networks, Content and Technology) and Innovation Secretary Daniel Annenberg (São Paulo).
