Slides from our talk at EU Opendays in Brussels some days ago, sharing stage with Eindhoven (NL), Birmingham (UK) and Stara Zagora (BU). We stressed the importance of multimodal transport and connectivity in smart and green mobility. Engagement and citizen awareness can also be fostered by digital tools as the Zaragoza’s citizen card. However, it is a challenge to pursue the path to green and civic mobility in the current financial situation. So new, radical approaches are expected. On these grounds, innovative infrastructures like Etopia Center for Arts and Technology are part of our proposal to enable citizens, public administrations, research institutions and companies work together in future smart city projects aligned with EU Horizon 2020 funding.
