Monday, 15. April 2013 Accesos : 3639


On April 15th 2013, ForoPPP organized a Breakfast-Meeting on Smart Cities with the title “Smart Cities: Vitoria-Gasteiz as model”.


The Conference took place at ForoPPP offices and Mr. Javier Maroto Aranzábal, Mayor of Vitoria-Gasteiz, was the main speaker of the meeting.


Representatives of companies such as BBVA, Broseta, Cofely, Ernst&Young, Imap Lynx, Ferrovial, KPMG, MVA Asociados, Pérez–Llorca Abogados, SGS Tecnos and Thales attended the Event.


In his presentation the Mayor of Vitoria-Gasteiz focused on the concept of “Smart Green Cities”, which links together the traditional definition of “Smart cities” to sustainability and environment.


For Mr. Maroto, “the first cities to get out of the crisis will be the ones that value the environment and take it into account”.


The Public-Private Partnership was analyzed as a fundamental ítem when funding the necessary  investments in this field. According to Mr Maroto, an important market niche exists in PPP applied to rehabilitating projects already existing.


The speaker also underlined 3 key elements for successful Smart Cities: a good technical project, political and social consensus and consciousness-raising in citizens.
