iCity

The iCity project encourages the participation of developers and companies to develop public interest services for the new urban spaces of smart cities. In this framework, the cities will open a number of public infrastructures closed to this date for their use on the iCity platform. The iCity project facilitates and creates an ecosystem in which different creative actors (developers, small and medium enterprises, searching ...) existing in the cities work together to develop, from this platform, new services that the cities can offer to their citizens.You will find more information and a form to join the group of interest in the project's website.
