SMART CITY
PLATFORM

INTRODUCTION

Bucharest, like so many other major cities in Europe, faces the challenge of combining competitiveness and sustainable urban development simultaneously. But how all these challenges are going to impact the life quality in our city, in terms of housing, economy, culture, social and environmental conditions?

Alba-Iulia, Sibiu and Cluj are three other important cities in Romania that fight to become the smartest cities in our country so it’s time to see what are the first smart steps and what more can we do reflecting on the performances of other European cities, but also of a very new developed region, as Dubai. Even if the European trend of transforming our cities into some that are smarter has generated a competition in this regards, with plenty of discussions and international conferences debating this subject, we still can’t understand what is possible in developed countries and what is possible in the emerging countries.
It’s time to find out.

WHY?

This is a special occasion for cities and solutions providers to discuss the future shape of our urban landscape. We intend to improve the matchmaking and active exchange between ICT industry and cities leaders. We will bring together technology developers, city representatives, high-level financial managers and EU-level and UAE - Dubai policy makers. Dubai is a mega-city to host the 2020 World Expo. Under the theme of “connecting minds, creating the future" Dubai will be the first city in the MENASA region to host this highly celebrated international exhibition.

WHAT?

The Smart Cities and Communities Initiative was launched by European Commission in 2011. In the first year (2012), € 81 Million has been earmarked for this initiative, covering only two sectors: Transport and Energy. Demonstration projects financed under the scheme can be in either one of the two sectors - rather than the two combined. Starting from 2013, the budget has been increased from € 81 Million to € 365 Million, covering three areas instead of two: Energy, Transport and IT&C. In addition, each and every demonstration project financed under the scheme must combine all the 3 sectors. Pooling the sources together also means using synergies. With this Smart Cities Partnership, the EU will help to establish strategic partnerships between those industries and European cities to develop and roll out the urban systems and infrastructures of tomorrow. A High level group consisting of CEOs from R&D-intensive industries, city mayors, regulatory authorities and public financing institutionswill be set up to support the successful implementation of this innovation partnership.
