RESOURCE Partner, Álvaro Simón de Blas, the CEO of BIC Euronova, participated in the Smart City Expo World Congress hold in Barcelona, 15th-17th of November 2022, as part of the consortium of the SME4SmartCities project and president of ANCES. This international event is the place to be to hear about the most innovative technologies. The SME4SmartCities project is totally linked to RESOURCE as it tackles smart cities deployment with a Circular Economy and Sustainability specific attention. Alvaro met leading companies in related sectors such as security, mobility, energy, etc., that are feeding Circular Economy stakeholders’ interest and value chain. For instance, BIPV that offers pergolas with sunroof panels integrated into the glass with power generation to diffusion water and cool the environment. All along the congress, tips were heard and companies spotted that will feed our work on identifying best practices and designing recommendations for Circular Economy projects to raise funding.
