We turn policy ambitions and objectives into a strategy and action plan to achieve digitalisation and improve public services while making cities smarter and more sustainable. We include all stakeholders with a special focus on citizen involvement.
There are several ways challenges and their corresponding data sets can be presented to the market, one being an open call to which solution providers like start-ups can apply. We provide guidance to optimise your open call. From clearly defining the challenge to defining clear expectations with selected startups, this knowledge can prove especially useful since small-and medium-sized cities often lack the resources (manpower, expertise and/or money) to efficiently promote and run an open call.
We support cities of all sizes on their path to become more sustainable and liveable through the use of innovative solutions/through digitalisation. We help them step-by-step from the identification and share of common urban challenges among our network of European cities and regions to the opening up of dataset and innovative procurement.
Cities in Europe face many similar urban challenges. By sharing and replicating each other’s solutions, delivering public services can become more efficient and costs can be decreased. We help cities connect, collaborate and scale up solutions, adapting them to the local context.
How can #collaborativerobots in the workplace provide benefits?
With the #manufacturing industry facing substantial challenges, take a look at how robots can solve issues from workplace safety to reducing the cost of production.
“Buildings and infrastructure are responsible for at least 40% of all greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, modern constructions mostly use cement and steel, 2 materials whose production consumes an enormous amount of energy and directly releases CO2”.
Last but not least, Ger van den Kerkhof of @FlandersMake presents the #COTEMACO SME Support programme, which gives #manufacturing SMEs hands-on experience with #collaborativerobots – including support valued up to €20k!
Minna Lanz of @TampereUni is the 2nd speaker of our webinar. She explains how Digital Innovation Hubs (#DIHs) can play an important role in supporting the R&D&I technology leaps that are strongly tied to the #competitiveness and #sustainability of the European economy.
‘The Future of Manufacturing in Europe’ has started! Our 1st speaker is @torres__an of @EU_ScienceHub, exploring the impact of #industrialrobots on the EU economy.
“People blame robots for the loss of jobs, but there is a positive relationship between robot use and employment.”
