What is involved in becoming a lighthouse city? Those cities that aspire to join the Sharing Cities programme and be a beacon guiding others need to keep a couple of things in mind when constructing their proposals:
All these points and more were expanded upon in a Sharing Cities brokerage even on Smart Cities and Communities, in which representatives of EUROCITIES, the European Investment Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities, the Commission’s DG ENER, and the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency dialogued with city leaders from 12 interested cities.
Cities heard how they can benefit from the programme through sparking local innovation, accelerating that innovation through shared-learning, maximising the reach of money spent, and effective branding. They then engaged in open and candid conversation, expressing their own concerns, interests, challenges and successes.
