The Smart City Guidance Package: the way forward

The objective of the event is to launch the Smart City Guidance Package (SCGP) by presenting the results of the work led by the Integrated Planning, Policy and Regulations Action Cluster of the EIP-SCC in order to provide public authorities of cities and communities, as well as non-governmental actors, with the necessary support for planning and managing smart city projects.

In the initiative “From Planning to Implementation and Upscaling of Smart City Projects” cities, industry, NGO’s and knowledge partners collaborate on the exchange of experiences in the integrated planning and implementation of smart city projects, and their upscaling and replication afterwards to achieve the urban transition to smart and sustainable cities on an increasing scale across Europe.

The Smart City Guidance Package (SCGP) wants to support this exchange so other urban stakeholders can benefit from what has already been done by others. It offers inspiration and guides urban stake-holders by bundling experiences and best practices of cities working on ambitious smart city strategies and projects. It provides insight into obstacles frequently met during implementation, and explores what it takes to scale-up and replicate. Its final aim is to support building a community around development, implementation and replication of smart city plans and projects. In this way, it helps to prepare the next generation of smart city projects and to involve new cities and urban stakeholders within and outside the EIP-SCC.

Background

The EIP-SCC Action Cluster Integrated Planning, Policy and Regulations focuses on Innovative forms of smart city policies and regulations that are needed to enable large scale implementation and roll-out of smart cities. Cities need an adequate set of framework conditions in the field of policy and regulations in order to be able to smarten up. New governance concepts are required to coordinate and integrate smart city stakeholders – cities, businesses, and research organisations – within the change process so to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Stakeholders need to jointly experience and learn with new forms of governance and policy concepts to further the process of becoming a sustainable, smart city.
