The CITyFiED, SINFONIA, READY and City-zen projects have recently been incorporated into the MySmartCityDistrict group (MSCD) taking the number of members to seven smart city projects. The group was set up last year between fellow projects EU-GUGLE, R2CITIES, and ZenN in a bid to boost synergy and leverage greater visibility of their demonstration activities under a single banner.
The seven project consortia are always on the lookout for opportunities to showcase their work and perspectives to targeted stakeholders under this brand image. Their sights have set on the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) due to take place between 15 and 19 June this year. As part of this unique series of events, MSCD are planning to open some of their pool of demo sites to the public as an Open Houses operation. The aim is to fully engage with wide but local audiences who stand to benefit from the retrofitting and energy efficiency gains these projects offer. Various showcases are being discussed since the Open Houses can take different forms – guided visits, exhibitions, demonstrations of technology etc.
In the run-up to these events during EUSEW, the MSCD group will be publishing up-dates and articles on social media. The group can now be followed on Twitter, and you can join the group on LinkedIn and exchange with some 185 smart cities geeks about their projects and yours.
