Pamplona is the capital of the Navarre province in northern Spain. One of the main stops along the Camino de Santiago, it is renowned for its beautiful Gothic-style churches. Over the years, Pamplona has shifted from an administrative and rural town to a medium-sized city of industries and services. 

The city benefits from a diversified industrial sector. While the automobile industry is currently the strongest sector, renewable energy technologies - wind turbines manufacturing and generation – are gaining weight amongst the local industries.

Pamplona is already part of the EU STARDUST project (holistic and integrated urban model for smart cities). The initiative aims to pave the way towards low carbon, highly efficient, intelligent and citizen-oriented cities. Together with Trento (Italy) and Tampere (Finland), Pamplona is one of the three designated lighthouse cities to develop urban solutions, deploy intelligent integration measures and test and validate technical solutions and innovative business models. 

In line with the Pamplona Smart City Plan, Pamplona has partnered with SICE, a systems integration technology company, to develop an ICT platform to generate data and improve public services provided by the local administration. 

Pamplona was a participant city in the DCC.
