Smart Cities Marketplace
Towards a just and clean urban transition

The Smart Cities Marketplace plays an important role in speeding up the green transition of cities in Europe by improving citizens’ quality of life, increasing the competitiveness of European cities and industry as well as reaching European energy and climate targets.

It complements current EU efforts such as RePowerEU with a complete catalogue of offers such as calls for free technical assistance, 1-to-1-consultancy services for city-led consortia close to the financing stage, financing masterclasses and a fine-tuned matchmaking for the financing of urban projects and intensified partnerships with other EU initiatives, such as the Covenant of Mayors, Scalable Cities, CIVITAS,
