Free support offered for smart cities of the future

17 December 2015

Twenty European cities are being offered free expert advice and support in their journey towards becoming smarter, more responsive cities through the new GrowSmarter City Interest Group, which was launched on 26 November 2015 at the Urban Futures Conference in Berlin (Germany).

The Group is open to city administrations in Europe with a genuine interest in learning from the experiences of GrowSmarter’s lighthouse and follower cities. Benefits of joining include exclusive invitations to study visits in Stockholm (Sweden), Cologne (Germany) and Barcelona (Spain), and access to thematic capacity building webinars. Support for replication activities will be provided through a dedicated Helpdesk, with direct access to the staff and businesses involved in implementing the 12 GrowSmarter solutions.

Membership is free of charge and applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Members are expected to attend at least one annual GrowSmarter capacity exchange and can choose to develop their own smart city replication assessment. The first three Interest Group members to develop a complete smart city replication assessment will be offered one on-site capacity building workshop to help develop a full smart city replication plan. Those interested in joining the Growsmarter City Interest Group are invited to send a completed application form to, stating their main areas of interest.
