9th Call Smart Cities Demo 2017

As the first European funding authority the Climate and Energy Fund started a Europe-wide Smart-Cities-Initiative in 2010. This initiative aims at enabling the development of strategies, technologies and solutions to facilitate the shift towards an energy efficient, climate compatible and affordable way of life for cities and their residents. These measures should lead to an increased quality of life and simultaneously enhance the attractiveness of Austria as a business location. This ninth call focuses on the implementation: Austrian cities are intended to be used as testbeds to intelligently apply and combine technical and social innovations. Smart solutions should be developed by the cooperation of different actors enabling modern cities to adapt to the changing climate thus ensuring the attractiveness of urban living space not least for the future generations.
