Information about the project
smartCATALONIA, from smartcities to a smartnation
SmartCatalonia is the strategy of the Government of Catalonia that, in line with the Europe 2020 strategy of the European Commission, extends the Smart City concept on a national level to undertake a programme that integrates and coordinates local and multi-region initiatives in support of businesses and ongoing Smart initiatives throughout the territory. The strategy defines 3 main pillars: smart government, smart economy and smart territory and in those main pillars there are different topics and projects such as smart leisure projects, smart education programs and training for kinds and young people in primary school and smart mobility plans to reduce the pollution and the intensity of the traffic through the cities of Catalonia.
