Discover allows WeGO to streamline the process for WeGO programs where members are required to submit applications for project implementation and matchmaking in various smart city areas. Through Discover, WeGO will be able to help members identify suitable solutions to their needs and challenges and to connect them with experts, solution providers, funders, and investors.
Applications available on Discover include:
WeGO Project Implementer. The Project Implementer is a financial support and technical assistance program aimed to facilitate WeGO members’ transformation to smart sustainable cities. It aims to assess its member cities’ current smart city development status, draw practical strategies, and implement pilot projects that align with the local and/or national development goals and plans, in cooperation with consultants. Check out the details here.
WeGO Solution Finder. It is a systematic, comprehensive survey that extracts key data on ongoing or prospective smart city projects by local governments – at any stage of their lifecycle–which is then used to pinpoint and propose “packages” of solutions that can contribute to and strengthen the resources necessary for successful, citywide implementation. Details can be found here.
4th WeGO Awards. Cities and local governments, smart tech solution providers, and public organizations are invited to share their outstanding smart city projects and be recognized at the WeGO Awards. The application period is ongoing until May 29. More information can be found here.
