PFR for Cities is an innovative program whose main purpose is to support the development of Polish smart cities of the future. The solutions within the scheme are to improve the quality of life, facilitate the running of everyday matters for their residents, and to provide support in the effective management of the entire infrastructure.

Who is it for?

The program is addressed to representatives of cities who are interested in:

  • acquiring or expanding their knowledge on the development of smart cities (at home and abroad);
  • increasing the number of implementations of innovative solutions in local goverment,
  • facilitating the access to financing of this type of investments.

Above all, we want to improve the situation of the local government units and, therefore, help them to take the initiative in the implementation of innovative solutions in their cities. The aim of the scheme is also to improve the quality of life in the Polish cities.
