InnDEA València acts upon the business system by promoting innovation in the city’s productive sectors; upon the local administration by boosting the development of innovative apps to update urban services and to offer a more efficient response to the citizenship; finally, upon the city itself by transforming it into a sustainable, livable place, as well as an international benchmark.
All actions undertaken by this foundation aim at urban development and innovation for the sake of our citizens, and pursue the improvement of their living standards.
Since Valencia’s development as a Smart City is one of the main priorities within the Valencia 2020 Strategy, a specific iniciative called Valencia Smart City has been widespread among and shared with the city’s main actors in the context of the Local Covenant for Innovation, and more specifically of the Objective 4 and the Strategic Thrust 5.
Valencia’s City Council, coordinated by its ICT service and supported by the InnDEA València Foundation, has been working on the creation of a smart and innovative strategy for the city.
The development and execution of the aforementioned strategy and its central core, the Valencia Smart City Platform, have been entrusted to the Council’s ICT service, whereas the InnDEA València Foundation has been commissioned with the dissemination of the strategy, the participation in city networks, our relations with external entities and a potential involvement in other R&D projects.
