Epimorfotiki Kilkis sm LLC in collaboration with the International Hellenic University (IHU), organizes an online training seminar for the City Development Group (CDG) in Kilkis. The activity aims at providing the CDG with innovative methods and tools to think long term about the city’s prospects and research needs through the: 

  • Creation of a common vision and language; 
  • Formulation of co-designed pilot projects underpinned by a commitment to enhance digital development;

  • Development of an agreed strategy for the city. 

The training will be implemented from 11 to 15 July 2022. The members of the CDG, representatives of the Quadruple Helix (i.e., from the university, the businesses, the state and the society) will be trained by university educational staff.

The training will be repeated at the second part of the project implementation to capitalize on the knowledge and experience gained. 

The City Development Group, established in Greece, is seated in the department of IHU located in Kilkis. City Development Groups were created by the MED-QUAD project partners in their countries, in Italy, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine and Tunisia.  

In each involved country (Italy, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine and Tunisia) local authorities, university, private and public sector, have set up a City Development Group able to think long-term about the city’s sustainable regional development in the fields of water quality and the promotion of cultural heritage, based on digitalisation. 

University, transformed into a «socially aware university» has a guiding role within the CDG and it is responsible, among other things, for the training of the CDG members.
