Triangulum: Impact Monitoring and Assessment Exchange (SCC Workshop)
The European Union H2020 Smart Cities and Communities (SCC) programme has funded 14 Lighthouse projects with a total of 40 Lighthouse Cities to demonstrate how smart technology can deliver sustainability benefits to cities and their residents. These projects are monitoring and assessing the impacts of interventions in cities across Europe in order to provide evidence that will support wider uptake and replication.
This workshop provides an opportunity to exchange approaches to monitoring and assessing impacts, and discuss challenges and opportunities. It is aimed at colleagues responsible for monitoring and assessing impacts in the SCC Lighthouse projects, as well other key stakeholders and interested parties. The goals are to share best practice among the SCC Lighthouse projects and develop a shared agenda. The workshop will be small and interactive to facilitate sharing ideas and expertise. Key topics will be discussed in advance with attendees to focus the exchanges.
- Monitoring and assessing at different spatial and temporal scales
- Measuring softer social impacts and trade-offs with hard impacts
- Moving from outcomes to impacts
- Capturing and upscaling benefits
- Alignment with needs of different partners
- Data and data management
- Complying with open data requirements
