Since 2017, seven European cities have worked together to develop and implement smart solutions within the frame of the IRIS Smart Cities project. The cities of Utrecht, Nice, Gothenburg, Vaasa, Alexandroupolis, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Focsani have all contributed to push the boundaries forward when it comes to energy, mobility, ITC and citizen engagement.

As we approach the end of our journey together, we will host a final IRIS gathering on the 8th and 9th of March in Gothenburg to celebrate our achievements, summarize our learnings and identify our next steps.

When we arrive we have coffee and listen to a presentation of Lindholmen Science Park. Ericsson will showcase prototypes of 5G connected bicycle and 5G connected autonomous bicycle ferry before we walk together to the ferries taking passengers across the river. Here, public transport company, Västtrafik, will present how they are working to electrify its vehicles, including ferries. We take the ferry across the river and go together by public transport back to Johanneberg Science Park, where we have lunch at your own expense in either Restaurant OOTO or Waste.

    We meet in the golden building at Sven Hultins Plats 1-2 (across the street from where we were the day before). Per Löveryd, Akademiska Hus, presents the energy system on campus, before we walk together up the hill to Brf Viva (10 min walk), where we have coffee. Pierre Hult, Riksbyggen, presents the energy system at Viva. We then take a walk around the buildings, look at the battery room and peek into one of the apartments. We then walk to HSB Living Lab (15 min walk) and listen to a presentation by Evdoxia Kouraki, Johanneberg Science Park. Then we take a tour around the house, before walking back to A Working Lab (5 min walk) where Per Löveryd will show us the PCM energy storage and solar panels. Lunch is at your own expense in either Restaurant OOTO or Waste.

    We meet at A Working Lab, Sven Hultins Plats 5 (the red building where we were the day before) where we get a presentation of the digital twin based game Make your neighborhood sustainable, developed for IRIS by Utrecht SME ProtoFunk. Then we enter an electric bus (together with group 1) that takes us to Lindholmen. When we arrive we have coffee and listen to a presentation of Lindholmen Science Park. We then enter into the Visual Arena where we will get a demonstration of Gothenburg's digital twin and a discussion about the city's efforts into digitalization.
