EU Smart Urban Agenda

  1. 1. EU Smart Urban Agenda:EU Smart Urban Agenda: ForFor Smart,Smart, Sustainable and Inclusive COMMUNITIES AND CITIESSustainable and Inclusive COMMUNITIES AND CITIES; httphttp://:// The EU Smart Urban Strategy aims to transform European cities and communities as future-proof human-oriented settlements: intelligent and sustainable, smart and innovative, locally and globally attractive for businesses, citizens, visitors and investors. Each Community and City is projected to be managed by an open intelligent management iCITY platform as a communal digital dashboard for its connected critical areas and systems: Urban Land and Environment, Roads and Transportation, Energy networks and Utilities, ICT networks and fiber telecom infrastructure, Public and residential buildings, Natural Resources, Water and Waste management, Social infrastructure, Health and safety, Education and culture, Public administration and services. The EU Smart Urban Strategy is a key part of the Smart Green Europe Investment Plan presented to the newly-elected EC President Juncker and his new Commission for adoption.;

Ares (2015) 1350552  Subject: EUROPE XXI: “Smart Green Europe” (I-Europe Platform) 04/06/2015  To start a sustainable recovery, EUROPE has to pursue a holistic model of sustainable community development dealing with challenges in an integrated way, with the 21 st century models of governance and administration.  The “Smart Green Europe” (aka, i-Europe Platform) enables a centralized intelligent management of knowledge, ideas, people, goods, services, and capital, transnational physical, people, financial and digital flows. The EC is expected to adopt the “Smart Green Europe” Strategy for further translating into smart government plans, policies, programs, schemes and services, because of its great benefit and utility, see as attached.  The i-Europe is to integrate the current architecture of the Europe 2020 programs and instruments, policy areas, as well as its large scale projects of common interest, as Galileo, ITER, GMES, etc., as the pan- European Strategic Investment Framework implementing the principles of the EU budget 2014-2020 (EUR 1 trillion MFF & 1.1 trillion Asset Purchase/Bond Buying/QE Program).  The i-Europe Platform enables building integrated intelligent trans-European infrastructures, considering: “€200 billion is needed to complete the trans-European energy networks, €540 billion needs to be invested in the trans-European transport network, and over € 250 billion in ICT for the period 2014-2020”.  To start building i-Europe Platform, we ask you to make your political decision and secure funding for developing its first demonstration projects for massive rollout and setting standards and policy frameworks:  1. I-City Pan-European Governance Platform (to develop the urban systems and infrastructures of tomorrow, the Urban Europe Development Platform is proposed, as part of the i-EUROPE Platform. It’ could serve as a Common Governance System for 20 - 25 Smart City lighthouse projects, each with 6-10 cities, and an Urban Development Platform of 300 Sustainable cities within EU Funding 2014-2020)  2.

  6. 6.  1. What are the main rationales for an EU urban agenda? Where can EU action bring most added value? What elements of urban development would benefit from a more concerted approach between different sectors and levels of governance?  Building European Smart Cities of the Future.  2. Should an EU urban agenda focus on a limited number of urban challenges? Or, should an EU urban agenda provide a general framework to focus attention on the urban dimension of EU policies across the board, strengthening coordination between sectoral policies, city, national and EU actors?  A General Framework, a comprehensive holistically designed smart city development programs, as suggested in the Smart Cities Global Initiative.  3. Is the European model of urban development as expressed in "Cities of Tomorrow" a sufficient basis to take the work on the EU urban agenda further?  It needs to be combined with the Europe Smart Urban Strategy.  4. How can urban stakeholders better contribute to the policy development and implementation processes at EU level? Do cities need to be more involved in policymaking at regional, national and EU level? How?  They need to be actively involved in the EIP on Smart Cities and Communities, its Action Clusters Work  5. What are the best ways to support a stronger urban and territorial knowledge base and exchange of experience? What specific elements of the knowledge base need to be strengthened in order to better support policymaking?  Via the EU Smart Cities Stakeholder Platform, developing the i-Europe Urban Governance System  6. What should be the roles of the local, regional, national and EU levels in the definition, development and implementation of an EU urban agenda?  Cities and citizens must have a leading role. There should be created the Smart Urban Europe Concept and Policy, Standards and Regulations, involving the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities, its Action Cluster Integrated Planning, Policy, Regulation and Management, as well as the Cities of Tomorrow Group.  COMMISSION STAFF WORKING DOCUMENT.

  7. 7.  Based on (a) the major EU political priorities (i.e., the Jobs, Growth and Investment Agenda; the Energy Union Strategy; the Digital Single Market, Migration and Democratic Change); (b) the input given by stakeholders through the public consultation; (c) Member States urban agenda priorities; (d) the priorities agreed jointly by cities, the Member States and the Commission in the programming of the European Structural and Investment Funds6; and (e) the wider framework of Cities of Tomorrow; the following areas appear as priorities:  1. Smart cities: an upgraded and more holistic Smart Cities and Communities agenda as a tool to better integrate and connect energy, transport, water, waste and a broader ICT dimension (encompassing skills, sectors and technologies), anchored in a wider urban development context and integrating new innovative solutions that contribute to its objective.  2. Green Cities: the urban dimension of the 7th environmental action plan focusing on the potential of green infrastructure and nature-based solutions to the climate and environmental related challenges of urban development.  3. Inclusive cities: supporting urban physical and economic regeneration to fight urban poverty and build equitable cities for all regardless of sex, racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation, as well as addressing the challenges of migration, affordable housing and the socio-economic integration of marginalised communities.  These areas are not to work independently and in isolation from each other, and their impact on economic, environmental, climate, demographic, social and territorial issues need to be understood and considered. Good (city) governance and (urban) innovation are two key horizontal dimensions that need to be understood and promoted across all three areas.  COMMISSION STAFF WORKING DOCUMENT.
