Lighthouse project Remourban will be throwing its doors wide open this month when its first study tour takes place in lighthouse city Nottingham, UK.
Behind the tour is project partners Nottingham City Council and Nottingham Trent University – named UK’s greenest university –, and has been organised in cooperation with the Action Cluster on Integrated Planning of the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities and the Smart Cities Information System.
The day will feature a series of workshops on topics such as smart city indicators, innovative business models and integrated planning for accelerating urban transition. And attendees from the European Commission, The Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) and other Smart City lighthouse projects will be able to capture the realities of Remourban’s green endeavours in Nottingham’s Sneinton district and electric bus charging infrastructure at Queens Drive Park and Ride during the site visit.
This event marks the ever-closer collaboration among Lighthouse projects, which started in 2016 and currently involves 9 EU-funded projects representing more than 50 EU cities working to improving their ecosystems. The Study Tour will host the ceremony of the signature of the Lighthouse Projects Cooperation Manifesto, a formal collaboration agreement among the Lighthouse Projects.
