Fellow Cities

Following the lighthouse demonstration along the smart neighbourhood approach, SUPERSHINE will develop corresponding models in the Fellow cities by providing them with tailored tools to put them firmly on the transition pathway.

SUPERSHINE aims to extend its impact to other cities by creating customized models and equipping them with specialized tools to facilitate their smooth transition towards sustainable practices.
