For cities and municipalities: ESPON DIGISER Survey to support your digital journey

The ESPON Programme – with support from Open & Agile Smart Cities – are looking for your help and insights. As part of theĀ ESPON DIGISER project (Digital Innovation in Governance and Public Service Provision) and beyond, they are collecting data on the practices and current situation of digital innovation in European cities, towns and regions.

Why should JPI Urban Europe cities participate in this study?

The DIGISER project is a European initiative run by the ESPON Programme and supported by the European Committee of the Regions,, EUROCITIES, ICLEI, 100 Intelligent Cities Challenge, Smart Cities Marketplace and Open & Agile Smart Cities. The goal is to lay the foundations for future national and EU programs and initiatives that support municipalities in their digital transition. What is being done at local level? The survey is the cornerstone of the annual index, which will help you as a city representative to understand the current state of your digital journey and help cities benchmark themselves against similar cities across Europe. By participating in the survey, you will get a better overview of your city’s approach to digital innovation. The results of the survey can be used by local governments to apply for funding from future EU or national programmes.

>> The survey is open until 9 July 2021: (available in EN, DE, SE, IT, FR)
