Smart Cities innovating sustainably
Toulon (FR), 27-28 June 2019
The European BIC Network (EBN) is organising the next edition of its TechCamp in Toulon (France) in partnership with EU|BIC Toulon var Technologies on 27-28 June 2019. The TechCamp is the main EBN technical event where incubation and acceleration practitioners from EU|BICs all over Europe and beyond come together for mutual learning, experience exchange and enhancement of technical know-how.
This year the focus of the TechCamp is on smart cities innovating in a more sustainable way, in line with the European Commission priorities of making a greener Europe and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. EBN wants to know how digital technologies are affecting our lives and will help business to improve their services supporting cities towards an ecologic transition to digital transformation and urbanism that have been implemented in experimental territories.
Interactive workshops will showcase and train participants on emerging best practices addressing:
- multi-stakeholder and multi-governance approaches for developing and implementing sustainable energy climate action plans;
- scaling up of companies in the tourism sector through the integration of cutting-edge technologies and innovation, while adhering to the UN Sustainable Development Goals;
- co-designing locally tailored ecological solutions for value added, socially inclusive regeneration in cities; and,
- how to reinforce the networking among transborder incubators.
Design Thinking approaches will be used to open up new ways of exploring problems, putting the consumer at the centre in order to develop novel solutions to current problems rather than creating new needs.
This year EBN is joining forces with its member EU|BIC Toulon var Technologies and co-organising TechCamp jointly with their Murex festival, which showcases how creativity can be harnessed to promote sustainable innovation.
