Connected Places Catapult is developing an exciting new programme working is developing an exciting new programme working with our global strategic partner ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability and the governments of the Metropolitan Area of Guadalajara (Mexico), Buenos Aires (Argentina), Campinas (Brazil) and Monterrey (Mexico). The programme will develop long-term business-led research and innovation collaborations between these cities and the UK to address city-level challenges related to climate change and resilience.
The programme aims to understand how innovation can improve public transport within the Metropolitan Area of Guadalajara which has been identified as a sector that will need significant transformation for the metropolis to reach its zero net emissions targets. This collaborative workshop session aims to bring together local innovators, entrepreneurs, transport experts, academia and community ambassadors to identify priority challenges and opportunities for improving mobility in the city and develop a shared vision for the programme’s ambitions.
This will be a 3.5-hour session, including an overview presentation of the programme, interactive activities, networking, and refreshments.
