Nine smart city projects funded under the Smart Cities and Communities (SCC1) Horizon 2020 funding programme will contribute to the ICLEI coordinated "Smarter is cleaner" policy session on 22 June from 16.00 - 17.30. The session will focus on the replication potential of the energy-related smart solutions implemented in leading cities. These projects represent a total of 27 advanced cities and 30 learning cities, working to build up a catalogue of experience and techniques that can be applied in other cities across Europe. The aim of this joint event is to equip other cities with the knowledge to put these technological solutions into practice. [read more]
