Cities need to change and develop to overcome the growing difficulties and adapt to the increasingly knowledge-intensive economies
Cities need to become ‘smart’.
The “Smart Cities in the Mediterranean” Strategic Partnership aims to work for ‘smartering’ cities in the Mediterranean region by sharing resources, knowhow and experience.

Emphasis will be placed on the application of the smart cities framework in select cities around the Mediterranean,
