About us

The Italian Technology Cluster for Smart Communities, SmartCommunitiesTech, is a national association with over 150 partners (from the industrial, research and public administration worlds) that collaborate in the development of innovation projects for the management of urban and metropolitan areas, in particular in the following topics: smart and collaborative mobility (intelligent mobility of goods and people), smart and secure living (urban security, protection of the territory and critical infrastructures, prevention of critical or risk events, IT security of data and their use), smart and inclusive government (relationship between public administrations and citizens, participation and social inclusion, processes and service management). Established in 2012 by MIUR as part of the national specialization strategy, the Cluster in 2017 is further recognized by the Ministry as a coordinator of industrial research policies at national and local level and for the development of territorial competitiveness.
