Setting priorities

Smart City concepts will affect your work, whether you are a city official, a business manager or an architect. Many demonstration projects in Europe show that there is lots to gain; economically, environmentally and socially. But how can you and your partners benefit from integrated, smart solutions? How do they help you to achieving your sustainability goals? The answers are often embedded in the planning process and in clear communication, and they shouldn’t be too complicated. The good news is: there are many good examples to explore!

Smartcitiesineurope.com brings together the learnings from various projects across Europe. The initiative includes a practical route to Smart Cities, learning sessions and the publication Smart City dynamics. This collection of thoughts and concrete advice will certainly help you to set priorities and to find those elements that can make the difference.
