"L'Italia delle città intelligenti e sostenibili". This is the focus of the event organized by TIM to explore the objectives, use cases and advantages of Smart Cities, taking stock of the state of the art of Italian municipalities. The meeting, held this morning in Rome, was also the place for the awarding of the winning companies of the 'TIM Smart City Challenge', an initiative launched by TIM Open Innovation aimed at building the cities of the future together with some of the main players in the world of industry, innovation and research, supporting Italian Municipalities and Regions in the adoption of virtuous management models.
The digital transformation of territories also passes through TIM's Open Innovation, which awarded the winners of the TIM Smart City Challenge, the scouting initiative launched to encourage the growth of the Italian Smart City ecosystem, in collaboration with some of the main players in this area, which involved around 170 startups, scaleups and innovative companies called to present solutions to make cities increasingly intelligent, safe and sustainable, through applications that can be integrated into the 'TIM Urban Genius' urban intelligence platform. Over 70% of the projects are Italian, with strong interest also from foreign companies (Israeli, French and Spanish).
