SPARCS NEWSLETTER NOVEMBER 2023
For the second consecutive year, SPARCS joined a group of 31 European Union (EU) projects at the Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC) from 7-9 November 2023 in Barcelona, Spain.

SPARCS took part in the joint stand under the EC Initiatives on Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities, presenting urban solutions in line with the EU Green Deal and the REPowerEU plan.
SPARCS, along with POCITYF, RESPONSE, and ATELIER, took centre stage in leading the conversation about PEDs and their role in cities climate neutrality in a special booth session on 8 November named “Sustainable Cities Powered by Positive Energy Concepts.” The session was part of a wider interactive program, which comprised sessions organised by participating projects and initiatives, further enriching the congress’s thematic discussions.
