LED Lighting Need Not Be An ENIGMA To Urban Planners
ENIGMA is an initiative of 5 European local authorities determined to find integrated solutions to their lighting, ICT, environmental and safety concerns. In their search for an all-encompassing public lighting system, the 5 cities invite businesses across Europe to put forward their best ideas and to compete in the pre-commercial procurement process. Coordinated by the city of Eindhoven, the project’s 5 partner municipalities (Eindhoven, Malmo, Stavanger, Espoo and Bassano del Grappa) cooperate on procuring innovation and testing in a real life environment the technologies that their commercial subcontractors develop.
Opportunities to participate, exchange and learn.
The ENIGMA project offers opportunities for other public authorities to participate, exchange and learn, by providing in situ and online training sessions on PCP, by organising mutual learning opportunities in the form of study visits and work shadowing, and by opening its main events to other public purchasers. For upcoming project events, please see the list here.
Study visit on public lighting and interactivity.
Come exchange with the innovative procurers involved in ENIGMA at the Eindhoven Study Visit (foreseen for 12-13 November) and Work Shadowing (13-14 November). The event’s theme will focus on the inspiring qualities of light and on the potential economic and social benefits that interactive light displays and light festivals can have. For more information on the event, please see the information below and the draft agenda. To register, please click here. Participation in this event is only available to municipal employees from European cities and other public authorities.
