The Local Smart Initiative Award was handed out in tonight’s BR Awards Gala by Dan Nechita, member of the Jury and Co-Founder & President of Smart Everything Everywhere.

Winner: Alba Iulia Municipality, for its efforts to make Alba Iulia a Smart City

The award was picked up by Liviu Stanciu – Comunication Manager Alba Iulia Smart Cities & Valentin Voinica, Project Manager Alba Iulia Smart Cities: “We thank BR for this gift, it is a recognition that our work is beginning to show great results. I would like to thank big and small companies investing in Alba Iulia, who are looking for solutions together with us. Second, it was a nice dream of three people – but we know that a smart city is a long-term, difficult project, and without companies it’s impossible to develop.”

Alba Iulia Smart City 2018 is a pilot project meant to transform Alba Iulia into the first city in Romania where integrated smart city solutions will be implemented with the occasion of celebrating 100 years since the unification of Romania. The pilot project is implemented by the Municipality of Alba Iulia in partnership with the Ministry of Communications and Information Society.
