SMEs Making Cities Smarter

SMEs Making Cities Smarter 

As cities continue to grow, so is the number of challenges they are facing. Environmental, economic or social emerging issues call for new and unproven urban solutions. The increasing need for urban innovation will result in the development of a significant number of smart cities initiatives, creating new business opportunities for Mediterranean SMEs. If we want our cities to be efficiently managed and more livable for communities, public authorities and SMEs have to work together to come up with the best technological solutions. The project will make this collaboration possible by reinforcing the capacities of Mediterranean cities and SMEs. 

Furthermore, our project will help cities become the front-runners of innovation, particularly through public procurement of innovative solutions. It will also work closely with Mediterranean SMEs to guarantee that their products and services meet the expectations and needs of smart cities.
