Commercial Content Partner Accounts
Local and Regional Authorities.
SmartCitiesTV started in November 2021 as a way for European Union funded city & urban development initiatives to share content with each other through a single dedicated platform.
Over the last 10 months we have rapidly grown into a formidable information exchange and an integral component of the European Smart Cities Project; where all Public Sector Organisations from across Europe responsible for developing the city, urban and industrial environments of tomorrow come together to share know-how, ideas, inspiration, solutions, planning and progress for the benefit of all.
We partner with numerous front line initiatives & collectives who are key drivers in shaping Europe’s future; some of these include, The Council of European Municipalities and Regions, City of London Corporation, CIVITAS, Covenant of Mayors Europe, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, European Energy Research Alliance, EIT Urban Mobility, Energy Cities, Eurocities, European Cluster Collaboration Platform, IRIS Smart Cities, ITU, JPI Urban Europe, Local Governments for Sustainability Europe, NetZeroCities EU, Sharing Cities Programme, Smart Cities Marketplace, Smart City Expo World Congress, Smart City Sweden, SmartEnCity Project, Swedish Government, The Broadband Commission, UK Government, URBACT
As we look forward to the next 12 months the platform will continue to serve as an informative and cohesive destination for all those involved in urban policy making, planning and implementation while in tandem extending it’s utility by working as a powerful agent to facilitate collaboration between the Public and Private sector – ultimately helping the community with its shared goal of creating more efficient, connected, environment-friendly towns and cities which will enhance the quality of life of inhabitants and reduce our ecological footprint.
We are currently inviting leading Private sector businesses to Partner with us ready for our official launch in October/November 2022.
Join us in these exciting times.
