The SMILE Project

While in most Mediterranean cities, addressing green and smart urban development, promoting innovative and cost effective urban logistics solutions whilst improving public and private stakeholder knowledge are gaining momentum, the SMart green Innovative urban Logistics for Energy Efficient Mediterranean cities (SMILE) project is set to act as a catalyst in  making smart Med cities ever smarter.

The SMILE Project

SMILE project notably aims at increasing major stakeholders’ knowledge of the strong impact urban logistics can bear on energy efficiency development. Our project will endeavour to improve and widely share knowledge of successful energy efficient urban logistics solutions that have proven to be both successful and highly applauded by critical stakeholders in the urban logistics chain, as they lead to – among other features- positive outcomes such as energy consumption reduction, reduced negative externalities (e.g. congestion , noise, GHG emissions…) etc. 

 

The SMILE project also intends to deliver much awaited tools, information and recommendations which can serve as practical accessible tools supporting smart and efficient urban logistics-related public policy definition and implementation in regional, national and even trans-national frameworks.

Wherever your particular interests may lie in the field of smart and energy-efficient urban distribution, the SMILE project portal will provide you with the relevant support material you may need and will offer you an opportunity to join a dynamic network of innovative active stakeholders…
