Join the Digital Building Blocks for Smart Cities Webinar and Become a #EUSmartCity

Feb 19, 2019Ecosystem

Dare to rethink your city. Be part of a Smarter Europe.

Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) is back with an opportunity you won’t want to miss. On February 26th, from 10:00 – 11:30 (CET) they will be organizing their next “Digital Building Blocks for Smart Cities” webinar and you are free to join.

We live in a world where everything is digital; from shopping to booking a taxi. We’ve built up true brand loyalty when it comes to companies that provide us with these simply contact points. Yet when it comes governments and their processes, we are often left feeling somewhat weary.

The European Commission, through their CEF Digital programme, aims to change this by helping cities, governments, and municipalities move forward in their digital transformation. European public administrations are doing their best to create more positive, as well as smarter connections between citizens, governments, and businesses through the creation of Smart Cities.

CEF Digital offers eight Building Blocks that support this exact digital transformation, and the FIWARE Context Broker is one of them. Join the “Digital Building Blocks for Smart Cities” webinar on February 26th to learn more about the services these Building Blocks have to offer and to become a #EUSmartCity. Register now.
