Print PDF


Awards in the competition for Contracts and Projects Smart City 2014, organized by the Sociedad de la Información magazine, have been delivered at the end of March.
A Coruña, currently presiding the Conference of Atlantic Arc Cities (CAAC), has been one of the cities awarded, in the category of Integrated Management, which supports the commitment and the investment of the municipal government in new technologies.
The initiative, Coruña Smart City, is the sum of a horizontal technology platform capable of integrating data from multiple sources and a set of pilots covering different areas of management of the city. The data collected will have different origins: municipal data, deployed sensors, existing systems and other contributions by the inhabitants. Coruña Smart City thus forms the brain of the city, processing and ordering data for different applications, managers, businesses and citizens.
Similarly, Santander, CAAC member, has received a recognition for its strategy of Urban Mobility.

Brest Métropole leading sea bio ressources

Print PDF

An initiative of Brest Métropole Océane, Atlantic city of the year 2014, supported by Technopôle Brest-Iroise ; Atlantic Blue Tech project brings the main European economic actors of sea bio resources together.

The blue growth is considered as a major challenge for the future development of the Atlantic Strategy. Atlantic Blue Tech will strengthen the maritime excellence of Brest and its partners at a macro-regional level, while promoting the emergence of an economic sector offering long-term prospects. Sea bio resources represent a promising high-growth branch that still works below potential due to numerous barriers.


With the INTERREG Atlantic Area and in preparation for the 2014-2020 European funding period, Atlantic Blue Tech will identify a series of transnational structuring projects to guarantee the development of Atlantic companies and laboratories.
