When it comes to cities, Europe has much to contribute. Its urban models have many flaws that need to be addressed, but they still come very close to the ideal of sustainable development. European urban models represent a middle ground between the unsustainable urban sprawl of American cities and the high population density of most Asian megacities.
Smart Cities Startup Europe Awards rewards the best startups working on projects related to smart city management. Topics of interest include, among others, planning, mobility, waste management, energy efficiency, water cycle and citizen participation.
