Urban Transitions Workshop

20 Jul 2016

Climate-KIC invites Partners and experts to co-create innovation projects in the Urban Transitions theme. 

Please join with us in stimulating new work in the second half of this year and beyond. In particular, we are seeking to co-create projects for launch this autumn that take forward innovative and replicable ideas to market.

Workshop details

We will convene in Paris, July 21 – 22 with a programme that will identify activities we can take forward at building, district, and city scale. We are seeking to attract a broad and influential set of Partners and collaborators to meet potential consortia partners and make action plans that we can support. The programme will begin with a welcome networking dinner on the evening of July 20, followed by two full days together.

The sessions will be designed and facilitated to achieve:

  • A more connected and informed Partner and collaborator network
  • Provide an opportunity to focus on the issues at building, district, and city scale whilst also supporting cross fertilisation of ideas between scales
  • Identifying high priority areas for additional Climate-KIC support in the second half of 2016, particularly in demonstrator and scaler activity
  • Stimulating and enabling consortia of Partners to co-create innovation opportunities for both 2016 and 2017

Who is this for?

We are seeking to engage with the ‘first movers’ and ‘fast followers’ that will help us drive the transition to low carbon resilient cities. Attendees need to understand our approach, the barriers and opportunities for scaling climate innovation. Participants will need to have a deep understanding of their organisational plans and how these may align with Climate-KIC priorities and support mechanisms. We are keen to align with your high potential activities! No more than 2 participants per organisation preferred.

Organisations attending include City of Birmingham, Province of Utrecht, Efficacity, ENGIE, Imperial College London, TNO, TU Berlin, Veolia.

You are encouraged to attend for the day that best matches the expertise and interest of the persons you wish to nominate. Participants are also welcome to attend both days. July 21 will focus on buildings and July 22 on District and City scale innovation.
