Basque Government awards SmartENCity Project

01 Feb 2018

With the beginning of 2018, Vitoria Gasteiz’s implementation of SmartEnCity project has been chosen by the Basque Government as one of the “10 flagship projects of 2017” within the regional Research &Development plan “Science, Technology and Innovation Plan Euskadi 2020 (PCTI)”.

PCTI Euskadi 2020 has been designed as a reference for the European guideline RIS3 (Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation). The Plan identifies three strategic priorities (Advanced manufacturing, Energy and Biosciences and Health) and four territories of opportunities (Food, Urban Habitat, Ecosystems and Creative and Cultural Industries), considering those as emblematic projects that have given results that demonstrate their strategic nature, or those that have been identified or recently launched and are considered to to have great potential.
