What is a Smart City?
In the future, municipalities must handle a completely different complexity in society. In order to have well-functioning cities, cities must improve how they utilise their resources and how they engage with technologies in different ways. A smart city will use digital technologies to enhance performance and wellbeing, to reduce costs and resource consumption and to engage more effectively and actively with its citizens.
Co-create the future cities
Three factors are critical to the success of future cities: Citizen empowerment, Open and experimental collaboration and Rewarding the intangible.
Funding from Horizon 2020
The Focus Area “Building a low-carbon, climate resilient future” covers the main actions that can contribute to the goals of the Paris Agreement, which marked a new era in fighting climate change. Actions aim to develop across all sectors ground-breaking technological and non-technological solutions, capable of achieving carbon neutrality and climate resilience in the second half of this century in Europe and beyond.
