European Researchers' Night 2022

Unite! Smart Cities by and for the citizen

During the European Researchers' Night on 30 September, 2022 Unite! organised an open webinar "Smart Cities by and for the citizens". 

All EU member states and 12 associated countries have been selected to join the ambitious goal to develop Climate City Contracts, which will include an overall plan for climate neutrality across all sectors such as energy, buildings, waste management and transport, together with related investment plans. In total, 100 cities have been selected to join this transition. This process will involve citizens, research organisations and the private sector.

Learn about the transition to sustainable and climate-neutral cities by 2030 from our researchers from six different European countries. See the agenda of the event here
