Second High Level group meeting of the EIP on 'Smart Cities and Communities'

Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transport, Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Digital Agenda, Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, and Johannes Hahn, Member of the EC in charge of Regional Policy, participated in the second High Level meeting of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) “Smart Cities and Communities”. The event brought together city leaders, industry and the research community working to identify and then to deliver, new ways of improving European cities in a more joined up way.
Smart Cities are cities which best use modern technology services and infrastructure, and modern ways of working and raising finance to make real improvements in the everyday lives of the people that live in them and the businesses that generate wealth and employment. It represented another important contribution to building a digital single market, one of the key issues led by Neelie Kroes to be discussed during the European Council of 24/10/2013.
The EC was expected to invest around 200 millions euro to create Smart Cities in the following two years.
