Cities and regions are driving force in the development of innovation and digital transformation ecosystems

In November 2016, the Directorate-General (DG) for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, and the Committee of the Regions will launch a call for expressions of interest to cities and regions that wish to shape an ambitious and visionary strategy for digital transformation.

The objective of the call is to support cross-regional partnerships and joint investments in digital transformation in the context of the Smart Specialisation Platform on Industrial Modernisation. The cities and regions will join forces in a network and, using their own resources, apply the Blueprint for cities and regions as launch-pads for digital transformation.
