If you work in Smart Cities, IoT, Open/Big Data or have an innovative idea that you wish to secure funding for, you now have a unique opportunity to influence the shape of SELECT for Cities innovation competition through the launch of the open market survey.
With 5.5 million Euro to fund innovative R&D between 2016 and 2018 through a series of competitive stages, SELECT for Cities wishes to ensure it really is investing in cutting edge solutions that meet city needs. Therefor this 'consultation' period forms the foundation of the whole competition.
The results of the survey will be taken into account when developing the tender specifications (for developing city-wide Internet-of-Everything platforms) later this Spring, ready for the competition launch in the Summer. There will also be opportunity to meet the procuring cities themselves (Antwerp, Copenhagen and Helsinki) at a series of open meetings this May and June. However, please note the competition is open to anyone across Europe and is not limited to just those based in the procuring city sites!
Grab a coffee, set aside 15 minutes and take part in the survey today.
