The five partners are supported by ten knowledge and networking partners, who provide expert advice and inform other European cities about the procedures and innovations developed as part of the project. Through the ENIGMA project, the city partners from Sweden, Finland, Italy, The Netherlands and Norway, will initiate a joint Pre-Competitive Procurement process leading to the procurement of innovative solutions and radical improvements for these and other cities’ urban safety and energy efficiency using next generation ICT applications in the context of innovative public lighting systems in part of their city fabric.
