Concretely the project had the following objectives:

The European AI and robotics Testing and Experimental Facilities (TEFs) is an initiative to build a permanent capacity to test and approve these new technologies before they hit the streets. 

Testing and Experimentation Facilities (TEFs) are specialised large-scale reference sites to test state-of-the art AI and robotics solutions. They are open to all European technology providers wanting to test both software and hardware AI products and services in real-world environments. 

Local Digital Twins Procurement Helpdesk service & Digital Toolbox

In an effort to advance the digital transformation of EU communities, the European Commission (DG CNECT) has launched the Local Digital Twins Toolbox Project to support cities and communities with their digitalisation processes towards the implementation of AI-powered local digital twins. This pilot phase, which will lay the ground for large support to European cities and communities, represents the first step of this project.   

Data Spaces for Smart and Sustainable Cities and Communities

The European Data Space for Smart Communities (DS4SSCC-DEP) initiative is a pivotal deployment following the preparatory action for a Data Space for Sustainable and Smart Cities and Communities (DS4SSCC). The preparatory action for a DS4SSCC laid the foundation for its deployment.


CommuniCity is a transformative citizen-centred EU funded project. It will launch 100 Tech Pilots in Europe in urban and peri-urban areas to empower marginalised communities. They are working together with companies, organisations, associations, tech providers, and citizens to develop solutions to overcome digital and urban challenges.
