Smart City Innovation Centre is a platform involving local authorities, research and academic institutions, as well as leading smart city-related companies, with the aim of allowing these actors to pool their data and knowledge in a single location, thereby multiplying opportunities to develop smart urban services and solutions. In a first phase, the project will aim at implementing Smart City Innovation Centres in accordance with the specific environment and socio-economic needs of each participating country. Building upon and capitalizing on the results of the first phase, the project foresees a second phase, aiming at creating a network of Euro-Mediterranean Smart City Innovation Centres, composed of tandems between Northern and Southern Mediterranean cities, operating as a platform for smart-city stakeholders - such as local authorities, research and academic institutions, non-governmental organizations supporting innovation, public service enterprises and innovative start-up companies - to exchange knowledge and best practices towards fostering sustainable, innovative, energy efficient, and inclusive cities in implementation of the UfM Urban Agenda objectives.
