The EIP-SCC Roadmap 2017 “Supporting Action Clusters' Initiatives to deliver business cases and scale them up" identifies the key targets for this year in terms of collaboration among cities, industries and financiers as well as other key stakeholders.
In addition, it details the roll-out actions to be undertaken to achieve its goals. The goal is to make the Marketplace a meeting platform between demand for innovative solutions by cities, supply from investors and technology providers and financiers.
Amongst the priorities for 2017, the Marketplace will be playing the role of a network of networks, will reinforce key stakeholders' engagement and will be the place where feasible business cases will be tested. Efforts will also go in the direction of knowledge sharing and replication of success stories.
The Roadmap includes key actions to assist the realisation of projects and help prove the investment model in 2018. We hope that the more successful ones will be replicating successful solutions by 2019. This is more likely to be happening in the vertical Action Clusters: Sustainable Urban Mobility, Sustainable Districts and Built Environment and Integrated Infrastructures and Processes.
It also takes into account the enabling roles of collaborative actions such as new business models, finance and procurement arrangements, new strategies and tools to increase smart citizen participation and engagement, new strategies and tools for integrated planning and policy and regulations.
