Event description

Description


The European Union H2020 Smart Cities and Communities (SCC) programme has funded 14 Lighthouse projects with a total of 40 Lighthouse cities to demonstrate how smart technology can deliver sustainability benefits to cities and their residents. A key task for these projects is to monitor and assess the impacts of interventions in cities across Europe in order to provide evidence that will support their uptake and replication elsewhere.

This workshop provides an opportunity to exchange approaches to monitoring and assessing impacts, and discuss challenges and opportunities. It is primarily aimed at colleagues responsible for monitoring and assessing impacts in the SCC Lighthouse projects, as well other key stakeholders and interested parties. The goals are to share best practice across the SCC Lighthouse projects and develop a shared agenda around this topic. The workshop will be small and highly interactive to facilitate the sharing of ideas and expertise. Key topics of concern will be discussed in advance with attendees and will provide the focus for the exchanges.


Key topics

· Monitoring and assessing at different scales

· Moving from outputs to outcomes
