The European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities will hold its 2016 General Assembly on May 24 in Eindhoven (Netherlands). Over 400 participants are expected, making it one of the most important smart city innovation events in Europe.

In its third edition, this event is the place to be for learning about key policy and market trends and creating new contacts and networks.

High-level representatives of the European Commission, the Presidency, other European institutions, cities and companies will share their views on developing further a strategic agenda for smart cities of the future at European level.
