You may have missed the press release, but last June, 8th our partner from Trikala, E-trikala S.A., participated in the “Major Cities of Europe” conference in Leipzig and presented the Cities-4-People project to the public that attended the event.
The organisation “Major Cities of Europe – IT Users Group” is composed of leading experts of Innovation in cities. The members foster city innovation by setting priorities and envisioning useful activities, by identifying key and emerging topics of city innovation, and by organising workshop and launching initiatives. One of the main activities of the organisation is the annual conference. Every year in a different city, the conference is an occasion for distinguished speakers from all Europe and worldwide to present the latest ICT innovations in their cities and to share strategies, projects, successes and more. Informal exchanges and discussions take place during the whole conference.
E-trikala S.A happens to be a member of the Boarding Committee of the IT USers Group. Therefore, it attends the conference every year in order to disseminate a number of European projects that are currently implemented in the city and to exchange on best practices. This year, three projects were presented, among them Cities-4-People. All projects were presented with a 5-minute PowerPoint presentation. This may seem a very short time, but the presentations still managed to give a very good first impression of each project and invite questions from the audience. A stand was available if people wanted to gather additional information. The projects were also promoted in the newsletter of the conference.
The dissemination level achieved with the conference was considered very satisfactory. We hope the next year will be even better!
