Funding for Smart City projects increased to €22.5 million

The Investments, Regional Development and Informatisation Ministry has increased its allocation for the smart city projects call, from the original €7.5 million to €22.5 million, the ministry press department told TASR on Monday, adding that the reason for this is the high level of interest shown in the call. As part of this call, towns and cities have received support in the way of EU funding for introducing smart city solutions. These include parking sensors, air monitoring, lighting for pedestrian crossings, systems for regulating urban public transport, the interconnection of urban information systems and the collection, evaluation and further use of data. Projects aimed at implementing chatbots or the migration of open source solutions may also apply for support.
