Today, cities occupy approximately 2% of the earth’s surface.

The need for these cities to become increasingly intelligent is growing.
Why? Just imagine… by 2050, 70% of the world population will live in one.

Innovative solutions for Smart Cities and Enabling Technologies are key.

None of these solutions would be possible without Nanoelectronics.

With Nanoelectronics at the heart of CATRENE, CALL 8 will gather a strong group of projects that aim to make smart cities: even smarter; as well as more comfortable; efficient; and green while at the same time developing strong enabling technologies. 

 * Important Note: Projects showing a high level of innovation that are outside of this focus, but in line with the ambitions of the VMS and the White Book, can also be submitted to Call 8.
