Sustainable urban delta 

The Innovation Expo 2016 will put the Netherlands on the map as a Sustainable Urban Delta during the Netherlands’ Presidency of the EU. As an innovative breeding ground, the Netherlands strives to share its knowledge with expanding mega cities across the world. It is about solutions to the major social challenges such as climate change, depletion of raw materials, food security and ageing populations.

Kick-off by Dutch Prime Minister Rutte 

On 14 April 2016, around the EYE in Amsterdam-Noord, more than 200 exhibitors will showcase the Netherlands’ expertise in terms of Sustainable Urban Deltas. Many of them promising startups like Mobiele Dijken, Power Window or Wingsprayer. Prime Minister Rutte will kick off fifteen meetings on Building the City, Connecting People and Healthy Living. Among the speakers will be Sokwoo Rhee, Martijn Aslander and Eva Gladek. 38 EU ministers of transport and environment and various international delegations will visit the Innovation Expo. There will be new Green Deals and the winner of the Challenge City of the Future will be made known.
