Request from EC DG Connect

Dear member,

ITS Sweden just got this request from DG Connect!

I recommend all of you that have interest in the area to respond!


Dear  Stakeholder,

You are receiving this message because in the past you have had some interaction with and/or you expressed interest in the activities within Smart Cities and Sustainability at DG CONNECT of the European Commission.


The reason of contacting you is to inform you about a new opportunity that we are offering, namely inviting you (the external community of stakeholders) to express your views on the DG’s future plans and actions. This is done through the following process:


–          All Services of the DG have developed metrics in relation to what they want to achieve in a certain time-horizon through their various activities.


–          These metrics are now available for public consultation up until 15/03/2013 and can be accessed at


–          To get to the metrics that are particularly relevant to Smart Cities and Sustainability just complete the questionnaire’s first part, then click on ‘continue to part 2’;


–          Here you will find all the metrics structured into several sub-chapters, with all our metrics under the heading “Sustainable and Secure Society” (our Directorate’s name) and starting with ‘Smart Cities and Sustainability’.


Your contribution to this open and transparent exercise of setting our goals at DG CONNECT would be highly appreciated.


Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Colette Maloney
Head of Unit
