GrowSmarter: transforming cities for a smart, sustainable Europe
In a rapidly urbanising world cities need to become smarter to respond to citizen needs and to reduce their environmental footprint. GrowSmarter brings together cities and industry to integrate and demonstrate ‘12 smart city solutions’ in energy, infrastructure and transport, to provide other cities with valuable insights on how they work in practice and opportunities for replication.
The idea is to create a ready market for these smart solutions to support growth and the transition to a smart, sustainable Europe.
