Supporting smart services

Endorsed by ENoLL (European Network of Living Labs)

The Project

The European Platform for Intelligent Cities – EPIC – is a European Commission-funded project (ICT PSP) that has been in operation since 2010. The project was desigend to combine state-of-the-art cloud computing technologies with fully researched and tested e-Government service applications to create the first truly scalable and flexible pan-European platform for innovative, user-driven public service delivery.

The resulting EPIC solution combines the industrial strength of IBM’s ‘Smart City’ vision and cloud computing infrastructure with the knowledge and expertise of the Living Lab approach (which expressly engages citizens in service design) and has produced a platform for sustainable, user-driven web-based services for citizens and businesses.

 EPIC is supported and partly funded by the European Commission
