A new model of cities in which networks and services are efficiently designed and managed through digital and telecommunication technologies is an important opportunity for the Mediterranean region. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) enable cities to increase their efficiency in sectors such as transport, water supply, waste management, lighting and heating of buildings. The Green Growth Community is contributing to this urban transition by supporting projects that promote smart cities.
- Creating innovation ecosystems and applying the smart city concept through the use of digital and energy-saving technologies to improve service delivery for urban residents while reducing environmental impacts (ESMARTCITY, Enabling Smarter City in the MED Area through Networking);
- Strengthening clusters’ & agencies’ transnational activities to support SMEs in exploiting market opportunities for green & smart mobility products and services (GREEN MIND, GREEN and smart Mobility INDustry innovation).
