Smart cities can be defined as cities where the interaction between different forms of data across buildings, vehicles, citizens & assets is used to manage and improve all aspects of city life. The goal of smart cities is to make them more efficient and sustainable to improve quality of life for their residents. We here forth propose a framework which considers all the 3 phases of a smart city: Building (which targets materials & systems), Operating (which targets urban assets) and Living (which targets dwellers) in the City. Based on this framework, there are several sub-themes which fall under the scope of the Smart Cities Programme.  

Participation Criteria: Up to €150,000 for Maltese Public Entities and Public Research and knowledge-dissemination organisations (Option B) or for Maltese eligible undertakings (Option A) Project Timelines: 12, 18 or 24-month projects Budget: €600,000
