Extracts from the common press conference by Siim Kallas, Neelie Kroes and Günther Oettinger on Communication on Smart Cities

95 views

On 10 July 2012, Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, Neelie Kroes, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Digital Agenda, Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transport, held a joint press conference on Communication on Smart Cities, in Brussels. The Smart Cities and Communities Initiative was launched in 2011. In the first year (2012), 81 Million euros has been earmarked for this initiative, covering only two sectors: transport and energy. Demonstration projects financed under the scheme can be in either one of the two sectors - rather than the two combined. Starting from 2013, the budget has been increased from € 81 Million to € 365 Million, covering three areas instead of two: energy, transport and ICT. In addition, each and every demonstration project financed under the scheme must combine all the three sectors. Pooling the sources together also means using synergies. With this Smart Cities Partnership, the EU will help to establish strategic partnerships between those industries and European cities to develop and roll out the urban systems and infrastructures of tomorrow.
