Smart City Solutions Call for Proposals
As cities continue to grow, so is the number of challenges they are facing. Environmental, economic or social emerging issues call for new and unproven urban solutions. The increasing need for urban innovation will result in the development of a significant number of smart cities initiatives, creating new business opportunities for Mediterranean SMEs. If we want our cities to be efficiently managed and more livable for communities, public authorities and SMEs must work together to come up with the best technological solutions.
Overcoming this challenge with the greatest source of innovation – entrepreneurial citizens and organisations – the consortium partners have joined forces to launch the SME4SMARTCITIES Call for proposals. The objective of the Smart City Solutions Call for proposals is to support SMEs in developing innovative and technological solutions to major urban challenges faced by the Mediterranean cities participating in the project.
The individual challenges that are part of the Call for proposals will tackle urban challenges identified by the SME4SMARTCITIES consortium partners in their territories. These challenges are open to companies willing to design smart solutions that will enable large-scale co-creation, testing and validation. By working together, cities will receive the benefits of innovative research and development, and potential contractors can rapidly develop and test a new product that can be taken to market.
Full details of the Call for proposals and selection process can be found online (www.sme4smartcities.eu). Proposals must be received by the SME4SMARTCITIES team by 18:00 CET on the 23rd of November 2021.
