eipscc-v2The annual General Assembly of the EIP-SCC will be held in Brussels on Thursday 12 October 2017, with a clear focus on stimulating joint investments in the smart city market, building towards a coordinated plan to make that real in the market at scale.

Cities, industrial players, investors and financiers of smart cities and communities projects will be joined by Commissioners from the sectors concerned, who will be actively involved in the debate to share their thoughts and to help making the Marketplace the arena where smart solutions are developed and implemented in European cities.

“Towards a Joint Investment Programme for Smart Cities” summarises the goal for the General Assembly: to stimulate scale deployment of digital solutions in all sectors involved in the Marketplace.

The European Commission continues its commitment to the European Innovation Partnership for Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC Market Place), through the sponsorship of DG Energy, DG Move and DG Connect.

With the EIP-SCC General Assembly taking place in Eindhoven at the end of May, Smart Cities are now at the top of the European political agenda. Smart Cities are a focus area for Horizon 2020 and many projects have already been piloted and implemented across the Union.

Next challenge for smart cities will be to open a European market for interoperable solutions and common procurement specifications. That is the idea now defended by Roberto Viola, head of the European Commission’s DG-CONNECT. Read his opinion by clicking here

M. Viola announces that, in November 2016 and under the EU Urban Agenda, “as part of [its] commitment to improve access to information, advice and investments, the Commission will launch a special portal for cities. It will provide a single, transparent, entry-point for details on EU policies and funding opportunities for cities, including access to finance and technical help from the European investment advisory hub”.

Cities will also be able to find new substantial amounts of money from regional policy funds that have now become available to local authorities as well to invest in infrastructures and innovative services.
