We are an international partner network that aims at making administrative staff drivers for digitization. The innovation lies in our goal of creating a pan-European platform for knowledge exchange regarding Smart Cities. This mutual learning approach is essential in a domain which is as new as it is important for defining the future of cities. Often, there is a gap between the vision of digitization and daily work of administrative staff. We want to provide knowledge for those who implement Smart City projects on the local level, across Europe and regardless of town size. The design of future cities reflects societal challenges of our era such as climate change and we shall create dialogue about how this design could eventually look.
