The Network will participate and contribute at the Gulf Research Meeting taking place in Cambridge UK on 1-4 August. Of particular interest for the Network is the workshop, Smart Cities in the Gulf: Current State, Opportunities, and Challenge. The goal of this workshop is to explore the current state, opportunities, and challenges related to Smart Cities in the GCC. Scholars and decision makers will discuss current challenges and practices adopted in Gulf cities. Promising and novel implementations of Smart City concepts will be mapped and assessed.The exchange of knowledge during the workshop will aim to bridge the current gap between different stakeholders such as policy makers, researchers and innovators, and private sector entities.

Dr. Haris Doukas, Network’s Research Collaboration Specialist is an invited delegate and he will present the “Intelligent Energy Management within the Smart Cities: An EU-GCC Cooperation Opportunity”.
