Matchmaking With Urban Project Promoters


As urban populations increase, budgets tighten, and the pressure is on for cities to improve services and infrastructures for a better quality of urban life, smart city solutions tackle urgent urban challenges by improving air quality, using energy efficiently and enabling new services.

The European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC) Marketplace is an initiative supported by the European Commission that aims to nurture and accelerate smart city solutions to support innovation to implementation, and solution replication and scale-up. The Marketplace’s implementation focus is on energy, mobility and integrated infrastructures (ICT).

What we are looking for

We want to engage with financiers who are interested to invest in city projects.

For this purpose, we created a dedicated platform to get the people involved in smart city projects to meet one-on-one. Early-stage discussions between these parties help co-designing solutions and improving the opportunities of finance and, ultimately, development.

After three rounds of successful Matchmaking in the last four months, the EIP-SCC Marketplace is organising the next matchmaking session on 28-29 March in Turin, Italy.

Should you register to the Matchmaking platform we will inform you by email once the event date and location is disclosed.
