The ERA-NET Cofund Smart Cities and Communities (ENSCC) call was our most ambitious call to date in terms of the scope of topics this call aimed to address. This call was the product of a joint effort with the Smart Cities Member States Initiative. Furthermore, we had the support of the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 program. This call dealt with the topics of Smart Integrated Urban Energy and Transport Systems, Smart Tools and Services for the aforementioned systems, Smart and Big Data, and Smart Governance and Smart citizens. Due to the increased number of topics in this call, we thought it appropriate to expand the number of projects we funded.
