A practical workshop to help to know the Smart Cities concept and how to get started with an innovation project in the public sector.

The workshop is organized in a collaboration between Troms county municipality and Norway's Research Council. committed to developing our cities / regions to become even more modern, green and urban-friendly - you are in the target audience for this workshop.

The main objective of the workshop is to bring you some steps closer to an innovation project in the public sector.

We focus on Smart Cities thinking in an EU context. We will inform and inspire, but we will also spend time working on real issues that may be the basis for an application. We will find examples from current fields: Energy, ICT, Transport and Infrastructure. We will bring together researchers and the public sector to define and solve key challenges for the region.

We will guide you through the possibilities contained in various programs and funding schemes for projects.
