A lively and productive working environment was the signature for the second CITyFiED project meeting held in Izmir and Soma, Turkey, 24-26 March

Relevant, pertinent, applicable – a pathway to replication and exploitation for CITyFiED

With such a wide range of expertise and activities generated by the project, exploitation leader, Aude Pélisson-Schecker and Valerie Bahr of Steinbeis Europa-Zentrum have been busy from day one. Beginning with a hands-on exploitation workshop at the first project meeting, the process of identifying and refining CITyFiED assets has been non-stop.
