The first ESPRESSO-Workshop took place at the 19th of April in Bucharest. Aim of this workshop was to start an open dialogue with city authorities, policy makers, industry and NGOs on what challenges they face with respect of making cities more liveable, sustainable, efficient with the focus for future development of Smart Cities and potential roadmaps for integration. Interesting questions regarding the integration of Smart City solutions and the improvement of solutions offered to citizens were discussed as well as the question how can we make sure we speak the same language across Europe.
