  • SMART-SPACE brings together end-users (cities/citizens) and innovation stakeholders (research institutes, SMEs, enterprises) from NL, BE, FR and IE to jointly facilitate the uptake of smart lighting to reduce energy consumption, CO2 emission and to enhance the liveability of public spaces in small/mid-size municipalities. Until now implementation occurred mainly in small scale pilot projects, indicating that to reach the low carbon objectives requires a strong, transnational collaboration to move beyond piecemeal solutions.
