About Intelligent Cities Challenge

The Intelligent Cities Challenge (ICC) is a European Commission initiative bringing together 130 cities to achieve intelligent, socially responsible and sustainable growth through advanced technologies. The 2.5-year programme builds on the success of the Digital Cities Challenge, which helped 41 EU cities develop a strategic vision and roadmap for their digital transformations. Participating ICC cities are eager to become the engines for the recovery of the economy, create new business opportunities and enhance their cities, industries and SMEs’ sustainability and resilience through the uptake of advanced technologies, re-skilling and upskilling of the workforce.

The ICC is part of a wider EU support system to deliver on the promises of the European Green Deal - building an economy that works for all people and a Europe that is fit for the digital age.
