IRIS Smart Cities partners visited lighthouse city Métropole Nice Côte d’Azur, France in October 2018 to finalise a busy first year focused on in-depth analysis of end-user, business, citizen and technical requirements for smart cities.
The city of Utrecht is the Dutch frontrunner in car sharing. In early October 2018, the city signed a Green Deal to further accelerate shared mobility progress. With the Green Deal a broad coalition of 40 stakeholders agreed to an ambitious target: three years from now, in 2021, the Netherlands should host 100.000 shared cars and 700.000 users of car sharing platforms.
Métropole Nice Côte d’Azur, with approximately 540,000 inhabitants, is one of the frontrunners of Europe in terms of smart strategies and urban digital transformation. We caught up with Jean-Charles Maleysson to talk about their role as a lighthouse city for the IRIS Smart Cities project.
