The innovation center and the solutions tested there will serve as a reference for the Smart Murcia project, which will collect and analyse city information in real time in order to make decisions for the public welfare, improve the city's daily operations, coordinate multiple city services, strengthen safety and improve the quality of life for residents.

The Murcia City Council will promote the creation of applications using data analysed by the innovation center platform, helping to advance the provision of public services. Moreover, the innovation center will provide free access to its data in order to promote the generation of new proposals for the improvement of city infrastructure, such as public roads, transport, parks and gardens.

"Since the beginning of the Smart Murcia Smart City project, we have focused on the daily needs of Murcia and the formation of effective partnerships. NEC is an international leader in innovation whose specialized urban solutions will enable us to improve the development of Murcia and its digital transformation," said Jose Ballesta, Mayor of Murcia.

"With this agreement, we are excited to see Murcia join NEC's Smart City network, which includes communities across the United Kingdom, Japan, Portugal, Spain and more. The objective of this network is to share data that facilitates the implementation of Smart concepts, taking advantage of experience and knowhow," said Hironobu Kurosaki, President, NEC Europe Ltd.
