Action Plane : Ensure sustainability
Quality of life and sustainability are key concepts for the Center of Competences for Future Cities. There are some specific measures for ensuring that the CCFC is a sustainable long-term initiative.
» Seeking matching funds from the industry to complement European Commission support;
» Use the testbeds and living labs to attract new partners;» Explore national funding sources
» Involve partner companies in the consortia for future European projects.
The establishment of the Future Cities industrial affiliate program ensures that these objectives are met (see Ecosystem).
