WHAT IS THE SMARTER TOGETHER CLUB OF CITIES?
The Smarter Together Club of Cities will bring together cities from Europe and beyond with the objective of improving their capacity to implement Smart City solutions through networking, study visits and online tools. The cities already participating in the Smarter Together project will share their experience in five areas of co-created and replicable integrated smart solutions: citizen engagement, district heating & renewable energy, holistic refurbishment, smart data and e-mobility. In addition, members will benefit in multiple ways:
Access to excellent Smart City Know-How, notably to the Smarter Together Wiki
Participation in study visits in the Lighthouse Cities Vienna, Munich and Lyon, where innovative Smart City solutions on demonstration sites will be showcased
Direct access to city staff in the Lighthouse, Follower and Observer Cities of Smarter Together, enabling sharing of experience and know-how
Regular meetings of the Club of Cities, with the participation of city staff from the Lighthouse and Follower Cities
First-hand shared successful solutions from the Smarter Together project
Possibility to disseminate and showcase own actions and good practices via the Smarter Together communication channels
Collaboration in defining the future Smarty City themes the Club of Cities will focus on
Cross-border and international networking opportunities between European and international cities (from the Americas, Asia, etc.)
WHICH CITY CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE CLUB OF CITIES?
