IoTDuring our 19 September webinar, dedicated to smart city standards, Christophe Colinet, chair of the EUROCITIES standards and interoperability working group and smart city project manager at Bordeaux Metropole, presented the conclusions of the 29 April WG meeting in Rennes and reiterated the working group’s objectives. He highlighted the main points of the European Commission’s communication entitled ‘ICT standardisation priorities for the digital single market‘, and identified ways to align the WG’s objectives to the Commission’s priorities.

Together with Nikolaos Kontinakis, project coordinator at EUROCITIES, they explained the CITYkeys standardisation process and emphasised the role of key performance indicators (KPIs) in making cities interoperable and transparent. The CITYkeys project’s KPIs are set to be endorsed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).
