Join the Smart Cities Marketplace Matchmaking Info Session
The Smart Cities Marketplace invites all stakeholders to take part in a matchmaking info session on 07 September from 15:00-16:00 CEST.
The Marketplace is an initiative providing free-of-charge support services to cities and city consortia (including technical developers, investors, and other stakeholders) in need of tailored guidance and assistance for their smart and sustainable projects. To benefit from the wide range of free-of-charge services available, an application should be sent in response to the ongoing call. If you need help with filling out the application form, you may consult the Guidance Document (also see below) available, or contact the EU Smart Cities Marketplace via the Helpdesk.
This time the call for applications is organised as the Urban Transition Challenge within the Smart City Expo World Congress Smart Cities Challenges held by ACCIÓ, a department of the Catalan Government's Ministry of Enterprise and Labour and the Smart Cities Marketplace is an official partner.
The Urban Transition Challenge aims at identifying cities, consortia, and investors in demand for support to shape, accelerate, and get access to funding and financing for their smart and sustainable projects in the areas of clean energy, sustainable mobility and digital solutions.
Selected challenge owners (successful applicants that filled in the survey) are eligible for legal, financial, technical and governance assistance, webinar training, or even facilitated access to funding and financing via the Smart Cities Marketplace’s Investor network. The Marketplace matches their needs with technical assistance, 1-to-1 consultancy, guidance services and/or peer2peer exchanges from and with EC Smart City experts.
Register for the info session and learn all about the matchmaking opportunities of the Marketplace as well as the ongoing call for applications and the Urban Transition Challenge.
The online session is a valuable opportunity to ask specific questions to our experts about the Smart Cities Marketplace and how to engage in the call directly.
