The idea of smart cities is not new. The accelerated development of technology, globalization and the concern for sustainable development has in recent years contributed to the emergence of many of these smart cities around the world (e.g. Singapore, Barcelona, Oslo, London). As the organizer of the event could see these are mostly large metropolitan cities that have employed different solutions and technologies to become smarter.

However, majority of cities/towns in central and eastern Europe are smaller in size and therefore have different issues and challenges.

The aim of the oranizer was to connect such cities/towns in order to facilitate the exchange of best practices between them.
