Objective of the event is to launch the Smart City Guidance Package (SCGP) by presenting the results of the work led by the Integrated Planning, Policy and Regulations Action Cluster of the EIP-SCC in order to provide public authorities of cities and communities, as well as non-governmental actors, with the necessary support for planning and managing smart city projects.Cities and communities that want to implement smart city strategies will benefit by learning from the successe and failures of others. Project leaders, consortium members, and city representatives that have already implemented energy efficiency strategies, emissions reduction approaches, or smart city strategies likely have a wealth of information on lessons learnt, which may be inaccessible to others due to its sheer volume, emphasis on successes and not on failures, and the fact that many interesting projects have not yet been finalised so information is not yet public.

The SCGP attempts to systematize this knowledge base, draws generic conclusions on dos and don’ts, determines relevance for other actors, and makes the findings accessible. It is intended for urban stakeholders who have the ambition to start developing and implementing their own smart city projects in the nearby future, and want to orient themselves on what to expect and prepare beforehand.

In the initiative “From Planning to Implementation and Upscaling of Smart City Projects” cities, industry, NGO’s and knowledge partners collaborate on the exchange of experiences in the integrated planning and implementation of smart city projects, and their upscaling and replication afterwards to achieve the urban transition to smart and sustainable cities on an increasing scale across Europe.

The Smart City Guidance Package (SCGP) wants to support this exchange so other urban stakeholders can benefit from what has already been done by others. It offers inspiration and guides urban stakeholders by bundling experiences and best practices of cities working on ambitious smart city strategies and projects. It provides insight into obstacles frequently met during implementation, and explores what it takes to scaleup and replicate. Its final aim is to support building a community around development, implementation and replication of smart city plans and projects. In this way, it helps to prepare the next generation of smart city projects and to involve new cities and urban stakeholders within and outside the EIP-SCC.
