We are excited to further inform you about the parallel sessions.

In Session 1, we will discuss the scope of the current proposals regarding data and data governance, reflect on its potential impact on municipalities and highlight potential gaps with regards to data management. The session will be led by adelphi.

In Session 2, the German Institute of Urban Affairs invites you to learn more about the analysis of the municipal network approach in the field of digital transformation. Be part of the discussion round with the speakers and the audience, where the following questions, will be addressed:

What kind of networks are relevant for you? What is your experience with the transfer of Ideas, technologies and practices beyond borders? Is there demand for networking, other than so far available and which kind of support do municipalities need regarding European networking?

Various European funding programmes support the European Green Deal and the Digital Strategy. In Session 3, you will get an overview of identified EU funding programmes, an understanding of funding opportunities on topics and you will get some contact points and sources of information. The session will be led by the Steinbeis Europa Zentrum.
