Building alliances for the climate-neutral and smart city


November 6th 2022


The Smart City Business Forum brings together around 500 European and International decision makers to discuss key challenges for the climate-neutral and smart city. This year, we will focus on the role cities have in the Energy Transition and the Business Potential of technological solutions that can make the transition a reality. We’ll thus give center stage to the private sector’s role in achieving cities’ targets, creating opportunities for public and private actors to connect, building partnerships and take steps in accelerating urban transformation.

The program will consist of high-level keynotes, matchmaking, and workshops around specific challenges hosted by a variety of international public and private partners.
