The European lighthouse cities Nantes (France), Hamburg (Germany) and Helsinki (Finland) and 3 follower cities Bydgoszcz (Poland), Rijeka (Croatia) and Palencia (Spain) come together to combine ICT, e-mobility and energy solutions to create sustainable urban space. mySMARTLife is aimed at supporting EU cities in their transition into more sustainable places.

mySMARTLife project aims at the development of an Urban Transformation Strategy to support cities in the definition of transition models, as a suitable path to reach high level of excellence in its development process, addressing the main city challenges and progressing to the smart people and smart economy concepts.The main instrument to achieve this very ambitious strategy will be the definition of the Advanced Urban Planning, consisting of an integrated approach of the planned city interventions on the basis of a rigorous impact assessment, an active citizen engagement in the decision-making process and a structured business approach, from the city business model perspective, to the economic framework for big companies and local SMEs and Start-Ups.
