Italian Smart Cities: the national platform of smart communities is now online
Italian Smart Cities, the national web platform that collects smart community experiences and projects introduced in Italian cities and municipalities, is now online. Promoted and implemented by ANCI – Italian National Association of Municipalities – the platform is the most comprehensive tool available in Italy for the collection of urban innovation initiatives undertaken within municipalities.
The objective of Italian Smart Cities is to encourage the building of a network that can promote innovation in the territories and offer cities of all sizes ideas and experiences to replicate. Through browsing by subject, city and project, the platform allows companies, researchers, associations, and citizens to get an overview of the main “smart” interventions going on in the various cities, fostering virtuous partnerships among municipalities.
The platform shows the initiatives undertaken by the various cities in terms of energy efficiency, sustainable mobility, digital agenda, social innovation, and urban governance. A real working tool that has the aim of fostering the exchange of knowledge among administrations for the growth and development of intelligent Italian communities.
