Mediterranian Smart Cities

Adema Management has joint to the project “Smart Cities in the Mediterranean” promoted by the EUMED Consortium.

The “Smart Cities in the Mediterranean” Strategic Partnership aims to work for ‘smartering’ cities in the Mediterranean region by sharing resources, knowhow and experience.

The Partnership is formed between multidisciplinary organizations; research organizations, industry, innovative SME’s, civil society actors and other stakeholders to integrate a range of planning approaches as well as tools and enabling technologies that can support participatory-oriented city- and citizen-specific urban planning studies, capable of dealing with sustainability challenges that are faced by cities today.

The scope of the Partnership is to identify, develop and deploy replicable, balanced and integrated solutions in the energy, transport, and ICT in select cities in the Mediterranean region.


European and Mediterranean cities, although different from each other, they have similar needs that can be tackled best through a common approach. The “Smart Cities in the Mediterranean” Partnership will focus on areas where ICTs, energy and mobility overlap and will provide solutions that can be transferable to other cities.

Emphasis will be placed on the application of the above framework in specific case studies in select cities around the Mediterranean, “The Pilot Cities”.

The objective is to manage key challenges for Smart Cities and Communities in the Mediterranean region:
• to significantly increase the overall energy efficiency of cities,
• the use of renewable energy sources,
• the sustainability of urban transport,
• drastic reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in urban areas,
• Improve life conditions for citizens

The work of the Partnership will address the following main areas:
(a) Low energy districts (b) Integrated Infrastructures (c) Sustainable urban mobility
