Smart Cities Portugal - A Sustainable and Competitive Network



SMART CITIES Portugal aims to develop innovative and integrated urban solutions, enhance the participation of Portuguese cities and companies in the smart cities market, affirming the image of Portugal as a space for design, production and testing of products and services for smart cities. 

The urgency of an intelligent vision for the urban territories joined national companies, universities, financial partners and public entities such as AICEP. INTELI, with the support of the RENER network, assumed a leverage role for the project launch.

Smart Cities market is rapidly growing, presenting itself as an opportunity for Portuguese companies that develop and produce innovative solutions. Portugal has favorable conditions to develop an intelligent and competitive network:
