Summary of the Online Seminar

The SMCNetZero EU-funded project is holding an insightful webinar that focuses on the unique challenges and promising solutions for Small and Medium Cities (SMCs) and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). The project aims to bridge the gap between innovation ecosystems and SMCs, offering a collaboration network tailored to meet specific needs.
During the event, dive into the results of in-depth interviews and desk research, gain a data-driven understanding of the challenges and opportunities SMCs and SMEs encounter, and explore successful decarbonization projects together with cities and other stakeholders. This is your chance to interact, ask questions, and share your own challenges, as we're committed to customising our activities to your requirements. Don't miss the chance to access our SMCNetZero Digital Forum on the BABLE Smart Cities platform, your one-stop hub for resources, blueprints, and tools.
