The Spanish Network of Smart Cities (RECI) began to take shape in June 2011 with the signature of the ‘ Smart Cities Manifest. Innovation for progress ‘, whose commitment was to create an open network to promote the economic, social and business progress of cities through innovation and knowledge, relying on the information and communication technology (ICT).
After the founding meeting, held in Logroño, and separate organizational session of the working groups in A Coruña and Murcia, the network is formally constituted in June 2012 in Valladolid. RECI is presided over by the Mayor of Santander, Íñigo de la Serna.
It aims to exchange experiences and work together to develop a sustainable management model and improve the quality of life of citizens, focusing on aspects such as energy saving, sustainable mobility, eGovernment, people caring or security.
At presente RECI consists of 29 cities: Alcobendas, Alicante, Barcelona, Burgos, Cáceres, Castellón, Córdoba Guadalajara, A Coruña, Elche, Gijón, Logroño, Lugo, Huesca, Madrid, Málaga, Marbella, Murcia, Palencia, Pamplona, Rivas-Vaciamadrid, Salamanca, Santander, Segovia, Valencia, Valladolid, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Sabadell and Zaragoza.
