European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities

The Marketplace of the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC Marketplace)


The European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities (EIP-SCC) is a major market-changing undertaking supported by the European Commission bringing together cities, industries, SMEs, investors, researchers and other smart city actors.

Action Clusters

An Action Cluster is an assembly of partners committing to work on specific issues related to smart cities, by sharing the knowledge and expertise with their peers.


An Initiative is a thematic collection of projects. Each of the initiatives is belonging to one of our six Action Clusters.


Smart City Projects are a very common occurrence across cities, some funded by EU budgets, some by city, regional or national budgets and some by the private sector and thanks to the EIP-SCC Matchmaking there will be more!
