Knowledge Society Forum – October 19/20

If you can represent a EUROCITIES member or can wrangle an invite, this event might be of interest:

Birmingham City Council and Digital Birmingham are hosting the autumn 2010 Knowledge Society Forum (KSF) from 19-20 October on the theme of “Advancing Smarter Growth in Smarter Cities”.

The aims of the conference are to provide an opportunity for KSF members and other delegates to:

  • Gain an insight from senior EU representatives on the role of cities in delivering EU2020 smart growth and the EU Digital Agenda, and how these EU level strategies impact cities.
  • Have a dialogue with senior EU representatives on how cities are currently delivering smart growth and the kinds of EU level flexibilities and finance mechanisms which are needed to help them go further.
  • Share thinking on what constitutes a ‘smart city’.
  • Exchange good practice and ideas on cities’ initiatives to foster smart growth.
