After the introduction, the networking session was led by Mr. Hans Schaffers where many participants were given the opportunity to present and discuss their experience and ideas with a view towards development of Call 4 Pilot B proposals. On basis of this session, four thematic domains emerged as a basis for Pilot B proposals. A joint co-creating session was organized in four parallel working groups to elaborate the potential Pilot B proposals. The groups elaborated their proposals focusing on three aspects: ideas that make a city "smart", innovative services to be delivered by Smart Cities based on Future Internet technologies and existing platforms made available by involved Cities and LLs.
