Leading the Digital Decade Poster

Join us at the Smart and Green communities’ session on the 2nd June 16:15 to 17:00 CET and find out about funding opportunities for Sustainable and Smart Cities and Communities (SSCC) topics in the Digital Europe Programme (DIGITAL).

Cristina Martinez, Deputy Head of the Unit Technologies for Smart Communities, and Andrea Halmos, Policy Officer, will give insights into our vision and long-term strategy for SSCC, present the foreseen calls in the first Work Programme and answer your questions during the Q&A.

Cities are at the forefront of many challenges: social, economic and environmental, they deliver innovation and services that greatly influence the quality of life of citizens, and they are close to the citizen in terms of governance and communication.

Smart and sustainable cities and communities need an integrated and city-oriented approach to deal with the urban dimension of these problems, create and scale-up appropriate solutions and eventually embrace the so-called “twin” green and digital transition.

The European Commission aims to support cities and communities in these efforts; helping them to pursue their digital transformation regardless of their digital maturity. With the ultimate goal to equip our cities and communities with data-driven decision-making support tools, such as the so-called ‘Local Digital Twins’, funding under the Digital Europe Programme will support the implementation of the necessary digital enablers and create EU capacity for-large-scale deployment.

Our first Digital work programme actions will focus on 4 points. The need to:

o  Steer the governance aspects (cross-sector, cross-communities)

o  Create a dataspace for climate-neutral and smart communities as part of the Green Deal data space

o  Support the procurement of interoperable Local Data Platforms, and

o  Build capacity for Local Digital Twins in Europe (by addressing the supply and the demand sides)

Register for the event here.
