Sino-European innovative green and smart cities

SiEUGreen is a joint project of the European Union and the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology. It aspires to enhance the EU-China cooperation in promoting urban agriculture for food security, resource efficiency and smart, resilient cities. Building on the model of zero-waste and circular economy, it demonstrates how technological and societal innovation in urban agriculture can have a positive impact on society and economy. To achieve its objectives, SiEUGreen brings together a multi-disciplinary consortium of European and Chinese researchers, technology providers, SMEs, financiers, local and regional authorities and citizen communities. The project contributes to the preparation, deployment and evaluation of showcases in 5 selected European and Chinese urban and peri-urban areas: a previous hospital site in Fredrikstad (Norway), community gardens in Aarhus (Denmark), previously unused municipal areas with dense refugee population in Hatay (Turkey), big urban community farms in Beijing and a sustainable, green real-estate development project in Changsha (China).
