CITYKEYS will develop a performance measurement framework for monitoring and comparing the implementation of smart city solutions.

Together with five of our member cities – Rotterdam, Tampere, Vienna, Zagreb and Zaragoza – and research institutes VTT (Finland), AIT (Austria), and TNO (Netherlands), we have been successful in our proposal for a new smart cities project, CITYKEYS. 

The aim of the project is to develop a validated, holistic performance measurement framework for monitoring and comparing the implementation of smart city solutions. It will run for two years, starting on 1 January 2015. 

We submitted the CITYKEYS proposal in response to last year’s SCC-02-2014 call for proposals. The project has three main objectives:

  • develop and validate a performance evaluation system

  • build recommendations for the implementation of performance evaluation

  • promote synergies between stakeholders and replication of solutions

As well as the five partner cities, CITYKEYS will work with a further 10 cities to gather as much evidence and feedback as possible about the practical use, benefits and challenges of key performance indicators (KPI) and smart city project evaluation frameworks.
