About Us


What is SmartCEPS?


Smart City Evaluation Platform and Service is an integrated smart city solution for local governments to become smarter, more sustainable and more attractive for investors and start-ups. SmartCEPS project aims at developing an assessment tool and consultancy service for European municipalities to measure how they perform on the field of 'smart and sustainable city', how they can attract investors and how entrepreneurship friendly they are.


Our Aim


The energy and resource need of cities is growing. Municipalities race for new investments while try to manage the available resources and energy more effectively. The SmartCEPs project addresses three major problems connected to current smart city development: the lack of common standards and experiences, the mainly ICT-technology focused planning approach and the disadvantage of SMEs against large companies. The objectives of the project are twofold: to develop a consulting service for enhancing urban development and to help SMEs working in the field of smart and sustainable cities.
