Lower Austrian stakeholders discussed the next steps towards the Next2Met Action Plan

On 13 December 2021, ecoplus and regional stakeholders met online to present and discuss the status of the preparations towards an IoT Platform in Lower Austria based on the learnings from the Barcelona Provincial Council’s good practice “Smart Urban Platform”.

ecoplus reported on the activities carried out since the last LSG meeting: Interviews with the Regional Council Barcelona and Lower Austrian stakeholders, collection of information on different IoT platform solutions and possible use cases. The Action Plan with a list of concrete steps, the role of partners, a cost estimation and the funding instrument will be finalised by February 2022.

The stakeholders also discussed synergies with other ongoing European projects with Lower Austrian involvement under Interreg Europe, Horizon 2020, Interreg AT-SK and EaSI.

Working with stakeholders is fundamental for designing and implementing effective and successful Action Plans.
