As a part of this group, we introduce partial projects that have an impact on many life areas of the Prague inhabitants and that are linked to other strategic projects. These projects include, for example, smart furniture installed in public spaces (compression garbage bins or smart public lighting), building of a public wi-fi network, applications with practical information about the situation in the capital and many others.
We prepare the Smart Prague projects for the Prague inhabitants and its visitors. Prague inhabitants can contribute themselves by providing ideas of how to modernize the capital, thus forming the face of Prague. Should you have an idea for a smart technological project, which you are currently missing on the streets of Prague, do not hesitate and let us know. We take inspirations not only from the wide public, but also from developers, students and others who partake in hackhatons and other competitions. Moreover, we also monitor the development in cities abroad, by which we are also inspired. We assess interesting ideas and, if it is possible, we implement them.
When planning modernization of the public space, individual municipal authorities have been working with smart solutions more and more. In 2017, the Capital of Prague decided to provide grants to individual municipal authorities for their smart projects. From the historical perspective, it was the first grant to these entities, which focuses on the Smart Cities area. Operator ICT has assessed the projects submitted by individual municipal authorities from the perspective of their compliance with the Smart Prague 2030 Concept. The Prague City Hall has approved the grant.
