SimpliCITY introduction

SimpliCITY aims to:

  • scale up and increase the visibility of regional sustainability services (RSUS) by means of a novel platform, aggregating multiple regional sustainability service,
  • raise awareness for a “sustainable city lifestyle” and increase the number of engaged urban citizens by developing methods and tools for nudging a community towards the consumption of RSUS, and,

  • a newly established “smart city learning network” for exchanging experience on participation, rewarding and crowd-sourcing methods and innovation scaling activities (policy recommendations).
