What is Sharing Cities?


Sharing Cities is a £23 million pan-European ‘lighthouse’ programme and a proving ground for a better, common approach to making smart cities a reality. By fostering international collaboration between industry and cities, the project seeks to develop affordable, integrated, commercial-scale smart city solutions with a high market potential. By building collaboration across cities to aggregate demand and share learning around smart technology, Sharing Cities is seeking to leverage a further €500m in investment with cities across Europe.


The Mayor wants London to be the ‘smartest city in the world’ and has developed a roadmap to achieve this called Smarter London Together. Sharing Cities is an integral part of this, seeking to accelerate the take up of a new generation of smart infrastructure in order to make the city safer, cleaner and more liveable by enhancing our ability to use data and technology.
