Comment Neelie (Kroes)
Making speeches talk
[...] The European Innovation Partnership for Smart Cities and Communities that we launched this year will overcome the barriers to deploying these ideas. To break down boundaries between the sectors involved; make solutions adaptable, interoperable, deployable; and give administrations and citizens the tools and information to improve their lives. For 2013 alone, €365 million in EU funds has been earmarked for demonstrating these kinds of urban technology solutions.
