Smart Cities




Smart Cities

The Project

Smart Cities aimed to create an innovation network between governments and academia in six countries to promote excellence in the domain of e-services (development and take-up) in order to set a new standard for e-service delivery in the whole North Sea Region.

The transnational working method (pooling expertise and joint model development) was proposed to equip decision-makers to achieve further innovation in the delivery of e-enabled public services.

Smart Cities was also represented in the DANS cluster project (Interreg IVB North-Sea region).


  • Development of e-service platform with the potential to be shared across the North Sea Region in the domain of service-delivery, wireless service and take-up services
  • Implementation of innovative e-public services, such as joint pilot services channels, blue-tooth services for public transport, online forms in mobile phones and wireless city services
  • Development of common interface standards, practical indicators and management instruments to survey and guarantee e-service delivery
  • Co-design of public mobile services aimed at efficiency, cost-saving and participation with attention for e-inclusion
  • Establishment of a transnational network of North Sea e-Government leaders and an academic research network.
