Use of renewables and urban platforms are at the heart of this H2020 'lighthouse' project, in which 6 out of 7 cities are members of EUROCITIES (full or associated members).

This 'lighthouse' project, mySMARTlife (, funded under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, brings together 28 partners from 7 countries to build environment-friendly cities by reducing CO2 emissions and increasing the use of renewable energies. 

Objectives: Smart City – Smart Economy – Smart People

  • Use of renewable energy sources
  • Inclusive cities
  • Involving cities
  • Digitalisation of cities through urban platforms

More than 150 actions are being demonstrated in three ‘lighthouse’ cities (Nantes, Hamburg and Helsinki). Their experiences will then be passed on to four ‘follower’ cities (Bydgoszcz, Varna, Rijeka and Palencia) to set up their own urban transformation plans.

Nantes, Helsinki and Rijeka are three signatory cities of the Green Digital Charter. Rijeka was awarded last year best GDC project on 'Promoting open & interoperable solutions' (for the iURBAN project).
