IoT Platform for Cities
The cities of Copenhagen, Antwerp and Helsinki will soon launch an innovation challenge to co-create the next generation IoT platform for cities.
With a total budget of 5.6 million Euros, the EU Horizon 2020 project ‘Select for Cities’ takes form as a Pre-Commcercial-Procurement (PCP) process, where companies get cofunding to develop validated prototypes and test these in a real setting. The hope is that the prototypes will lead to future procurement of IoT platforms for many cities in Europe.
The call for tenders is expected to be announced in November 2016 and the PCP is expected to start at the beginning of 2017.
