IDC Europe and Central Asia Smart City Awards First Edition: Almaty, Cardiff, Gigantium, Kiel, Lisbon, Pisek, Turin, Valencia, and Vienna Emerge as Winners
This IDC Perspective examines the winners of this first edition of IDC European and Central Asia Smart City Awards: Almaty, Cardiff, Gigantium, Kiel, Lisbon, Pisek, Turin, Valencia, and Vienna.
"Winners of this award defined a clear goal, and they made very clear to all project partners that this was the goal for which the whole ecosystem was accountable for. They appropriated the budget for the duration of the project to provide an anchor for private partners to invest in the city. They also brought together global corporations, local SMEs, and local academic institutions," said Massimiliano Claps, research director, IDC Government Insights.
