This year’s rescheduled festival will take place from 21st September to 2nd October 2020.

And there are lots of ways European cities can get involved including:

  • Participating as a delegate in one of the many events on offer. There’s a wide range of events for you to participate in, ranging from Fintech, AI, data, cyber security, Healthtech, social media and much more. The full programme will be published at the beginning of September.

Creating Opportunities for Smart Places through Living Labs. A European Perspective.

Leeds City Council, in partnership with the European city network EUROCITIES, is organising an event as part of the wider Leeds Digital Festival that will discuss how living labs can create opportunities for cities to become smart places. 

As well as looking at the situation in Leeds, the event will aim to share examples of best practice from other European cities, examining some of the challenges they have faced in creating and setting-up livings labs, and the opportunities labs provide to support recovery and re-shape cities in a post-Covid world.

More details and a link to registration for the event will be made available soon.
