8th ESPRESSO-Webinar on 19th of January at 11.00 a.m. CET

The CityKeys Project

The aim of CITYkeys project was to develop and validate, with the aid of cities, a performance measurement framework for the common and transparent monitoring as well as the comparability of smart city solutions across European cities. The development of the framework included the key performance indicators (KPIs), the data collection procedure, the methods to calculate the indicators as well as policy and business model recommendations for the use of indicators. The project has built on existing performance measurement frameworks and has proposed the use of open standards and interfaces. It has also aspired to be the first framework that has a specific European approach and treats the smart city objectives and smart city projects in a holistic way.

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.
