If managed well, this dual challenge will provide great opportunities for local ecosystems to thrive and cities to prosper. This expert panel organised by Open & Agile Smart Cities will explore the link between the digital and green transition and how one can benefit from the other. Furthermore, we will explore how digital solutions – such as digital city twins or AI-driven solutions - can be replicated and shared by cities more easily thanks to a minimal and common mechanisms. And finally, we’ll touch upon upcoming opportunities and innovative ways to fund the twin transition on a local level.
