Horizon 2020 Cities of the Future 2019


During the event, 4 concurrent thematic workshops will provide participants with the opportunity to learn more about specific calls and to present their ideas.

Workshops and thematics can be seen in our Agenda.

All participants are strongly encouraged to present their organisations and project ideas. 

In order to be eligible for funding your travel and accommodation costs you must submit your presentation and project idea for approval.

Download the Presentation Template, complete it and upload it to your profile.


The event will bring together more than 300 participants from across Europe and Turkey, allowing them the opportunity to network, exchange proposal ideas and form consortia. Your Cooperation Profile is your business card; be careful to insert a high quality and meaningful profile. The better your profile the more meeting requests you will receive. You' will be able to request meetings after October 1st.
