Smart City Guidance Package

European Committee of the Regions, Brussels | 8th May 2018

Energy efficiency and strategic collaboration with local partners, supported by ICT tools to improve the quality of life of European citizens, having a long-term perspective on the built environment in mind: these are the key elements of the sustainable city of the future identified by the 'Smart City Guidance Package' (SCGP) launched by the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC).

The work was led by the Integrated Planning, Policy and Regulations Action Cluster of the EIP-SCC, “the Smart City Guidance Package aims at providing public authorities of cities and communities, as well as non-governmental actors, with the necessary support for planning and managing smart city projects”. The effectiveness of the seven steps outlined in the roadmap has already been successfully tested in five European cities (Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Sofia, Vaasa, Brno and Parma), according to the working methodology of the European Innovation Partnership: the active involvement of the different stakeholders in the development of smart cities, from institutions and cities including banks, industries, SMEs and citizens.

Cluster Sofia Knowledge City was a partner for this testing during the organized by the cluster a conference Knowledge & Smart Cities - Integrated Planning & Policy Regulations, November 2018. At the conference, the SCGP offered inspiration and guided the participants - city officers and experts from city administrations and urban stakeholders by sharing experiences and best practices of the team from other cities working on ambitious smart city strategies and projects.
