Joint CoR-EIB/JASPERS workshop on "Implementing the Urban Agenda for the EU: a smart city approach"

01/12/2016   | Cohesion policy reform; Single market: digital, energy and capital | 9 am - 1 pm |  Room VMA 1 |  European Committee of the Regions

This workshop, organised jointly by the Commission for Territorial Cohesion Policy and EU Budget (COTER) of the Committee of the Regions (COR) & European Investment Bank (EIB), aims at informing about EU funding opportunities and JASPERS technical assistance  to support urban development and smart city concepts and projects.

The workshop - that takes part within the framework of the "Urban Agenda for the EU" follow up activities - will bring together CoR members, ESIF managing authorities, and regions and cities that are beneficiaries in JASPERS countries of operation, as well as representatives of the private sector and the European institutions. Discussions will focus on the utilisation of ESIF for smart city development, including through the Integrated Territorial Investment mechanism.

The workshop will be followed by a series of local events organised by JASPERS in some of the JASPERS countries of operation. The final outcome of these events will feed into a joint report on the Implementation of the EU Urban Agenda, which supports the concept of the integrated approach to smart city development as a means of providing answers to local challenges.
