Campuses as living labs for smart sustainable cities
7 - 8 June 2016, Trondheim, Norway
The fourth Climate-KIC Nordic Cities Workshop will engage our community in forward-looking and proactive solution-oriented discussions about campuses as living labs for sustainable urban development.
Universities play a significant role in forging the path to a sustainable future. As property owners, they provide large-scale test beds for sustainable urban innovation, technologies, processes and services. Campuses are living labs that can inspire innovation and creative action in their own city and in cities around the globe by providing real-world examples of environmental, financial and social successes. The development of campus test-beds provides an opportunity to gain first-hand experience with cutting edge sustainable technologies, services and solutions for the entire city, at the same time creating healthier, cleaner, safer and more productive environments for university staff and students.
Who should attend?
City planners, architects, consulting engineers, contractors, university campus developers, real estate developers should join us for this ground breaking workshop. Come and engage with the Climate-KIC community in inspirational deliberation on coordinated climate action, and on coalition-building with an eye to project funding opportunities.
What is our aim?
The workshop will provide an opportunity for an exchange of best practice and brokerage of new partnerships for cities, industries and universities across Europe working towards smart sustainable cities.
A range of speakers will present their experience with and visions for innovative solutions to obtain better energy efficiency in new and existing building stock, mobility and transport planning, greenhouse gas emission accounting, resilience and biodiversity, sustainable behaviour and waste reduction, big data and data security – and the best business, partnership, procurement and investment models to achieve their high ambitions.
