Organized by the Turkey In Horizon 2020” project and TUBITAK National Coordination Office for EU Framework Programmes.

The “Cities of the Future 2016” Brokerage Event will bring together 300 researchers, industry professionals, government officials and policy makers from Europe and Turkey

The event will target the following H2020 calls:

  • ‘Smart and Sustainable Cities’ and ‘Energy Efficient Buildings’
  • ‘Sustainable Process Industries’ and ‘Circular Economy
  • ‘The European Green Vehicles Initiative’
  • ‘Factories of The Future

Cities of the Future 2016” is meant as a wider concept that encompasses cities' overall energy and resource efficiency with profound economic, social and environmental impacts, resulting in a better quality of life. In this context ‘Green Vehicles’ play an essential role, as well as further advances in ‘Factories of the Future’ or ‘Sustainable Process Industries’, for increased resource efficiency, new markets, and new job.

This event provides a unique opportunity to connect not only with Turkish and European researchers but also with highly qualified research-performing SMEs, making this event an excellent platform to expand networks and create new partnerships for the upcoming calls in Horizon 2020.


All participants are strongly encouraged to present their organisations and project ideas to the workshops. You can download the presentation template here and sent it back to us in
Our project will reimburse travel expenses (air tickets) and accomodation for a (limited) number of participants from EU member states and Associated Countries. Unfortunately participants from Turkey are not eligible for reimbursement according to Project rules. See more...
