How do we equip our cities for the future? If we want cities that are both CO2 neutral and future proof, we need a new interpretation of the interplay between digitalization, the energy transition, sustainable development and urban processes. Fraunhofer’s “Urban Futures” Conference aims to bring together relevant stakeholders from Germany and abroad specialising in sustainable urban development and the smart cities. Visionaries from municipalities, politics, business and research will be presenting and discussing their solutions for the cities of the future.

We are expecting more than 400 experts to attend. Exceptional program formats such as the “Call for ideas” innovation competition, “Morgenstadt marketplace”, “Speed dating” for mayors and the „Ideas lounge” offer additional opportunities to gather information and exchange ideas. Find out more about the conference program, confirmed speakers as well as signing up details by visiting our website.

Invitation to “Collaborative Cities: Design and delivery in Manchester” – 08 October 2015, London

The Chair of the APPG for Smart Cities Mark Prisk MP is pleased to invite you to our next event: “Collaborative Cities: Design and delivery in Manchester”
This discussion and networking event will take place on Thursday 8th October from 17.30 – 20.00 in Siemens’ R&D Centre, The Crystal, London E16 1GB.

Mark Prisk MP will chair this session and will be joined by the following speakers:

Steve Turner, Head of future Cities, Manchester City Council
Vin Sumner, Founder and CEO, Clicks and Links
Paul Brodrick, Head of connected Communities, Siemens
Mark Watts, Executive Director, C40

The challenges around the creation of smart city districts are not technology based. Their establishment and the solutions and technologies within them rely increasingly on collaborative working between public authorities, private sector industrial partners and academic institutions – this creates some unique challenges around governance and leadership as well as ownership of assets and data.
Smart city districts need to be able to demonstrate ‘place’ based benefits as much as ‘organisational’ ones. How we replicate smart city districts on a commercial basis and at scale also creates its own set of issues within a challenging public sector finance arena.
This event will explore the challenges and opportunities faced by Manchester’s Triangulum project, which focuses on the integration of energy, mobility and ICT systems around infrastructure assets within ‘Corridor Manchester’, and is a collaborative project involving five strategic partners: Manchester City Council, University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, Siemens, and Clicks and Links.
Please RSVP to or call 0207 403 1734 if you would like to attend.

The TRIANGULUM Steering Committee met in Eindhoven on 22nd – 24th June 2015 to discuss the progress of the project and to visit the Lighthouse District Strijp-S, a central development area situated in the former innovation hub of Philips. The project aims at transforming the former area into an innovation district providing the right eco-environment for the development of smart services and start-ups. In order to do that, a variety of different concepts and co-working facilities, exhibition areas, innovation laboratories and business incubators will offer their services and working space to the young companies of tomorrow.
