City/Municipality of Vicenza is a local public authority. Vicenza is a city in northeastern Italy, in the Veneto region. Vicenza has been enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994 and has been part of the Covenant of Mayors network since 2011 and of the Mayors Adapt network from October 2014 (adoption of SECAP in the 2021). With a total area of about 80 km2 and a resident population of 111.005 inhabitants (Dec. 2021), Vicenza is in fact a compact city, from the old town to the outskirts, enclosed in a dense belt especially in north, east and west quadrants. It is located in a diversified territory, rich of urban as well as productive excellence, involved in demanding territorial dynamics that invest the entire area of Italy Northeast.
Municipality promotes and coordinates local initiatives aimed to an awareness of the population on issues about the importance of good environment policies and actions aimed to achieve environmental sustainability. In particular, the Municipality takes care on every issue able to protect public health, carrying out the tasks assigned by the law on waste, local hygiene, pollution. The historical center of Vicenza has been closed to traffic since 1996 and freight logistic in the central area is exclusively managed through Electric Vehicles (Vicenza Eco-Logistic Center initiative – VELoCe, inhouse company owned by the Municipality and all trade unions).
Over the last years, the City has undertaken a series of actions going towards the development of policies of innovation, also thanks to the consolidated capacity on implementing and managing EU project activities (by EU projects office). Up till now it has managed 22 EU projects, also as lead partner, and it’s ERDF Urban Authority (for the implementation of the SUD-sustainable urban development strategy) for a grant total amount of 21 million euro (https://www.comune.vicenza.it/uffici/cms/politichecomunitarie.php/progetti_europei)07/07/2022 at 13:07 #8361MONICA SALVIATOParticipant
Many thanks for your e-mail and for your interest in our institution.
At this moment, we are looking for potential project ideas and consortia too. Unfortunately, we are not developing any specific proposals as leading partner.
However, considering the common interest in the second call of the EURO MED Programme, we can keep in touch for new potential projects and further collaboration with other institutions.
The Municipality of Spinea is established near Venice (IT) and it is in charge of all administrative functions regarding its population and territory of Spinea, with a specific focus on services devoted to citizens and community, local territory and economic development, safety and culture. Moreover, Spinea will be European City of Sport in 2023.
With regards to the current open EURO MED call, our entity is particularly interested in the “Innovative and sustainable economy” as well as “Green living areas” missions.
Do not hesitate to contact us for any further information.

EVtech4U is a Slovenian company specialised on sustainable mobility and building EV charging infrastructure. Would you be interested on joining the below project?
We are already working with Italian cities to achieve net-zero, and I think we can help.
EVTech4U have designed a solution to integrate sustainable mobility technologies; electric vehicles (EV) and e-bicycles focused on developing a 1. Comprehensive and reliable EV and bicycle charging infrastructure for tourist, citizens, public transport, and businesses, 2. Accessible electric bicycles, 3. Efficient use of renewable energy and grid stability, and 4. Digitalization of touristic routes and hospitality.
The implementation requires community engagement and proactive approach towards creating a better understanding about all the pros of sustainable living by its leaders. Our aim is to reduce emissions from the transport (public and private), protect the environment, promote sustainable tourism, reduce transportation costs, increase the use of renewable energy, develop micro grids to stabilize the grid network, develop smart and digitalised tourism, and – more importantly – to create a better-quality life for people around tourism.
Our project lays a foundation in the potential transformation of any major city and its rural areas’ tourism infrastructure. For instance, tourists who drive a EV will be welcome to visit the regions without concerns that their EVs will run out of battery allowing them to enjoy bicycle ride, a local meal or a drink. Also, unpleasant noise and the discomfort of smelling pollutants would be reduced to near zero. Everyone in the region would benefit from better air in a better city.
The short and mid-term goal of our EV charging infrastructure and cyclist routs project is also to increase the participation of business in green initiatives; tourism – Slovenia Green certification scheme, construction – Net zero certification schemes, or cultural – Climate mitigation in heritage buildings. Thus, it is expected that cleaner cities will attract more people, bring business interest and boost a sustainable local economy.
This project is also focused on renewable energy management and grid stability. For instance, the renewable energy produced should be first consumed, then stored in batteries; and the grid should only be used when there is not enough renewable energy available. The system should create a harmonisation between the supply (renewable energy and grid) and the demand (i.e. EV chargers, electric bicycles, heat pumps, lighting, internet connected devices) without exceeding the grid capacity.
In addition, the project will enable you to reap the benefits of becoming a smarter region. For instance, the impact on the air quality being monitored, analysis of the increased use of bicycles, efficient and alternative routes that could save time and resources, and, last but not the least, efficient utilization of the infrastructure (i.e. EV chargers) when combining it with other services (rental e-cars, e-bikes, e-scooters).20/09/2022 at 14:02 #10644Nataša OsrečkiParticipant
Dear Ms. Gaspari,
would you be so kind as to contact me with your e-mail so I could send you a project proposal we are working on (type: Test). We need a IT partner in the segment of firefighting/civil protection on the topic of new and emerging technologies.
Thank you, best regards,

The Municipality of Heraklion is interested to be a partner in your proposal. We would like to have more information and details on the development of your project idea.
Heraklion is the capital of Crete, one of the most economically active towns in the wider region. Also is fourth largest city in Greece. According to the results of the 2021 census, the municipality’s population is 157.452 people.
Mobility is our priority; we succeed to get closer to our missions through operations such as ECORouTs operation, which seeks the pilot introduction of a fleet of electric vehicles & buses, and C-IZEBs operation (Cooperative Intelligent education & electromobility Zero Energy Buildings) in which he deliverable was “Installation of Charging Stations and Electric Minibus Supply”.
Since March 2011, the Municipality of Heraklion signed the Mayors’ Pact, which is an ambitious initiative to involve local authorities and citizens in reducing energy consumption, saving resources and upgrading the quality of life of citizens. This European Commission’s main objective is to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 20% by 2020. For this purpose, the Sustainable Energy Action Plan was developed as a tool for identifying and certifying the energy policy of the Municipality and its intention to achieve the above objective. The participation of the Municipality of Heraklion following the proposal of the Energy Centre of the Region of Crete for the Covenant Capacity project, co-funded by the Europe – Intelligent Energy Program, is an important part of the training of the SDAE and aims to support the development of Action Plans On Sustainable Energy in Europe. In recent years, institutional players in the city, as well as public and private organisations have worked together more closely to promote and capitalise on the benefits of the city. Heraklion has an economy with comparative advantages in the agro-food sector and tourism. Emerging sectors of the economy are the Environment / Energy and innovation / new technologies sectors.
The Heraklion Municipality is currently implementing many projects regarding energy efficiency in public buildy, transportation. Since this is a priority for the municipality, we consider your proposal an assent to the strategic orientation.
