Entering the accelerator improves the presence on the local and European markets, especially in countries such as Spain, France, Germany and the Netherlands. For TeamDev  become part of the Digital Cities Action Line, a program that exploits the digital transformation of the city through centralized, participatory and collaborative interactions between all actors in the city: administration, service providers for the city, businesses and citizens. This transformation enables the implementation of innovative information, mobility and security services in cities.

Dolf Wittkamper, then head of EIT Digital, commented:

We are very happy to welcome TeamDev to our Accelerator. The company has developed Wise Town, a truly innovative product that can adapt to any public administration environment with European-wide application ambitions. And we particularly like the idea that it doesn’t just want to focus on big cities but also on small ones. Its approach is perfectly in line with our motto in EIT Digital, which is to ‘drive Europe’s digital transformation.

Together with Eit Digital, WiseTown participated in the largest B2B event dedicated to innovation in France, which this year reaches its 11th edition: Tech’Innov. https://www.techinnov.events/

On April 12, 2017 Roberto Saracco, the then director of the EIT Digital node in Trento, inaugurated a new Demo Room, an area destined to present nine initiatives with a high impact on the life of companies and citizens, supported by the organization.

The demos were selected among the activities of the four different lines of action promoted by the EIT Digital: Digital Industry, Digital Cities, Digital Welfare and Digital Infrastructure.

WiseTown, in the Digital City area, presented itself as a solution for public administrations, offering the possibility of exploiting the data produced and collected, allowing and rationalizing at the same time the participation of citizens.

In 2018 TeamDev became a partner of EitDigital.
