Launch of NiCE study tours in Vienna

  • knowledge society

Vienna will showcase its Green Digital Charter measures during a study tour in December 2013

The first Networking intelligent Cities for Energy Efficiency (NiCE) study tour takes place in Vienna on 5-6 December 2013. Visitors from the Green Digital Charter (GDC) signatory cities will be shown green ICT measures that Vienna is undertaking to fulfil its commitments within the GDC. 

Participants will learn from the host city through short presentations, site visits and peer-to-peer discussions. The aim is that visitors leave with fresh ideas and renewed enthusiasm to implement green digital projects in their own city.

Study tours are knowledge transfer schemes that allow site visitors to interact with local stakeholders and see how projects are implemented in reality. NiCE has developed a study tour catalogue with information for hosts and visitors. 

In the future, planned study tours will be advertised on the Green Digital Charter website:

By signing our Green Digital Charter, cities commit to reducing carbon emissions through the uptake of smart ICTs. To date, 40 cities including ten capital cities have signed up. The Green Digital Charter is available at the link below.
