Learn from pioneer cities in procurement & lighting

  • economy

The ENIGMA project is supporting cities in using pre-commercial procurement (PCP) to upgrade their municipal lighting systems.

To allow other cities to learn from the five ENIGMA partner cities, we are organising five study visits on themes connected to public lighting and PCP. 
The visits will give municipalities interested in the procurement of innovative lighting solutions the chance to exchange with peers from each ENIGMA city on the environmental, economic, and societal considerations of their procured innovation. 
The first visit is to Eindhoven on 12-13 November. It will focus on the artistic qualities of light and the economic and social benefits of interactive light displays and light festivals. The city experts working on this topic, as well as residents and other stakeholders, will present their vision for Chimney Alley (pictured - the area where the ENIGMA installations will be built) during the one and a half day study visit. For those interested in creating or developing a local lighting event, the study visit takes place during Eindhoven’s acclaimed GLOW festival
The study visit will be followed by a one and a half day work shadowing visit, during which representatives from European municipalities will be able to experience first hand how Eindhoven works on public lighting innovation.
Participation in the study visit is open to municipal employees from European cities and other public authorities. For more information, and to register for the Eindhoven event, click here
