Smart Cities and Communities
The EU enables European cities to internationally exchange ideas in Smart Cities and Communities projects and to set new impulses for sustainable urban development. The European concept of Smart Cities and Communities stands for an intelligent interlinking of technologies in the fields of energy efficiency, renewable energies, mobility, ICT and citizen engagement. More than 100 cities in 18 countries have so far received funding under Horizon 2020. They are testing new forms of cooperation and are thus becoming innovation centres of their own.
We support some of these projects in exploitation, communication and replication activities and in the development of innovative business models. For the Smart Cities Marketplace, we are a communication partner and event organiser on behalf of the EU, bringing together urban developers, investors, entrepreneurs and researchers and providing an online platform for cooperation, knowledge transfer and market introduction.
