Funding and Procurement approaches applied to Smart Cities

Giovanna Galasso & David Brunelleschi


Existing as well as emerging economic, financial and procurement models can be applied in various sectorial services of actual and future Smart City (SC) scenarios. This deliverable presents the most relevant and novel funding and procurement approaches applied to the SC domain. A special focus is also dedicated to the most appropriate operating models that can guarantee financial sustainability over time of SC projects. Relevant use cases of SC solutions have been collected in order to emphasise different successful approaches depending on the specific city needs as well as funding, financial and procurement models adopted.

The first ESPRESSO-Workshop took place at the 19th of April in Bucharest. Aim of this workshop was to start an open dialogue with city authorities, policy makers, industry and NGOs on what challenges they face with respect of making cities more liveable, sustainable, efficient with the focus for future development of Smart Cities and potential roadmaps for integration. Interesting questions regarding the integration of Smart City solutions and the improvement of solutions offered to citizens were discussed as well as the question how can we make sure we speak the same language across Europe.
