Gradually, companies, universities, technology parks and business and professional organizations, have been approaching this group, where they have found a place more than conducive to cooperation, innovation and development, both technological as economical

Its activity takes place in all parts of the planet and all kinds of cities are approaching in search of smart city projects, knowledge of the industry and support to move their desires into actionable initiatives./p>

What was born as a small nucleus called Andalucía Smart City has been transformed into a solid group with the most influential social mass and with more scope in its history, Smart City Cluster.
