Digital transition revolutionises the European urban landscape. The challenge is how to find financing tools which enable true transition, accelerating the adoption of new processes and solutions in cities.
The funding tools should support multi-disciplinary approach. Multi-disciplinary execution challenges funding programmes as funding is needed to link different types of actions and investment types; it is not enough to invest in IT infrastructure.
Digital transition is also a long term process, and it takes time to deliver the promise. The promise of a digital transformation is a combination of better service with lower operating costs. At the same time, the set time frame to reach expected results is not realistic. This means that it is challenging to create a budget for digital transition processes initiatives for a multi-year complex, cross-functional digitalisation process.
