European cities have been leading the way on smart city development for over a decade. Cities are pioneers in testing and implementing innovative, sustainable and integrated solutions to become greener, more efficient, and better places. Working at an EU and on local projects and initiatives, city governments have fostered territorial and multi-level collaboration and increasingly developed a broader smart city vision.
“Smart cities should be the places where a safe and fair use of technologies support people to shape sustainable and inclusive cities.”
Andre Sobczak, Secretary General, Eurocities
