We are working closely with the teams and are steering the idea about greater networking on such a subject and are looking forward to new cross-fertilisation of ideas that the next smart cities conference will bring next month in Croatia. This we see as an opportunity to hear about the achievement that Croatian cities have reached up to this point. .
