COST PED-EU-NET 1st URBAN STAKEHOLDERS WORKSHOP “Sharing best practices and facilitating the science-policy dialogue”

Invitation: Rome, Italy – 6 & 7 October 2021

Cities with diverse cultures, forms, structure, and histories are already implementing planning, design, and management approaches to optimize the contribution that positive energy districts (PED) can provide in terms of energy transition, economic development, environmental protection, improved social cohesion, and increased public involvement. In this framework, the aim of this 1st COST PED-EU-NET Urban Stakeholders Workshop is to share experiences and opportunities of cooperation, progressing our disciplines and facilitating the science-policy dialogue.

  • WHAT: A two-day-event on PED, specifically designed for Cities and other urban stakeholders.
  • WHO: COST PED-EU-NET members and invited City representatives. We have the opportunity tohost 20 participants for the two days, and COST PED-EU-NET will cover the travel andaccommodation expenses (according to COST rules).
  • WHY: Values and learning outcomes deal with: i) Support alignment with national, regional,European PED strategies and programmes; ii) Raise awareness of PED priorities and gaps among urban regional, national, European stakeholders; iii) Identify priority issues (most urgent, high- impact) for each energy transition path (Efficiency, Flexibility, Production) and cross-cutting to achieve ambitions; and iv) Support decision-making processes and actions for successful funding and joint implementation of the actions and measures identified.
