Webinar Summary
'Shared Experiences, Smart Solutions – How Lisbon, London and Milan are Embracing the Digital Future'
Cities around the globe are implementing smart city strategies to become more liveable, attractive and resource-efficient. Major international cities have been early adopters and, supported by EU funding through the Sharing Cities project, are investing heavily in technologies. Pilot programmes are now underway in several cities, to address some of the most pressing urban challenges such as energy use, low carbon transport and buildings, and to harness data for the good of the city.

During this webinar, we will learn from different European cities how they are embracing the digital future. Our panellists will share the the lessons learnt from the approaches tested and will talk us through the successful strategies in implementing smart city initiatives, based on intensive collaboration between all stakeholders.
