Over the past few years a new trend has been spreading in Europe. The concept of smart cities has gained momentum in connection with the sustainable development of urban areas and, hence, the life quality of their inhabitants. By means of using digital technologies as a vector to increase the efficiency of a large number of urban functions and services, several solutions are being developed and tested in the fields of Energy Efficiency, Mobility and ICT.


The REMOURBAN Project tackles those three areas in its demonstration sites, where energy efficiency in buildings, transport decarbonisation and the development of digital platforms are being put to the test. To do that in a systematic way, the Urban Regeneration Model for European cities (URM) has been developed as a methodology to help cities make the best mix of innovative technical and non-technical solutions to accelerate their transformation into smart and more sustainable cities. An insight into the URM and how it can bring European cities forward will be presented to the audience.


Next, the city of Valladolid (Spain) will be presented as a case study. Representatives of the Municipality of Valladolid (Spain), a city leader in the field of electric mobility and energy efficiency, will illustrate how the development of its Sustainable Urban Development Strategy was shaped by the URM.


Finally, the webinar will shed light into how and why the URM could also be used by other cities interested in undergoing similar urban development paths as Valladolid.


This webinar is part of a series of six webinars organised by the REMOURBAN project. It will be held in English and will last approximately 45 minutes.
