Smart cities

A smart city or community aims at the well-being of its inhabitants, businesses, visitors, organisations and administrators by offering digitally enabled services that contribute to a better quality of life.

These smart services can help cities to be more sustainable and reach their green deal objectives. They can contribute to better manage resources like energy or water, to monitor and reduce local traffic and pollution or in the work towards greener ways to light and heat buildings. They can also mean a more interactive and responsive city administration, engagement of citizens in decision and policy-making, safer public spaces and meeting the needs of an ageing population.
