Smart and Sustainable Cities and Communities Sector Forum begins

On the 24th of March, the first meeting of the CEN-CENELEC-ETSI Smart and Sustainable Cities and Communities Sector Forum (SF-SSCC) was held. The group will mark the continuation of the Smart and Sustainable Cities and Communities Coordination Group (SSCC-CG), which had existed with a limited timeframe. 

The SF-SSCC will act as a joint advisory and coordinating body for European standards related to Smart and Sustainable Cities and Communities. While the SF-SSCC will not develop standards, or other standardisation deliverables, the body will analyse and recommend standards for development, implementation, adaption or revision. In addition, the SF-SSCC will identify and liaise with relevant European and international activities to exchange knowledge. A core part of SF-SSCC’s work will be to compile an overview of suitable standards to encourage their uptake among municipalities and other relevant stakeholders.

ECOS will participate to ensure the wider uptake of meaningful sustainability standards at the European level.
