Budapest Among 100 Cities Chosen for EC Smart City Program
Budapest is among 100 European cities picked by the European Commission to participate in a program for 100 climate-neutral and smart cities by 2030, Mayor Gergely Karácsony said in a post on Facebook.

Karácsony said the cities of Miskolc (180 km northeast of Budapest) and Pécs (170 km southwest) were also picked for the program, dubbed the Cities Mission.

The cities will act as experimentation and innovation ecosystems to help all other European cities in the transition to becoming climate-neutral by 2050, he added.

The European project has a budget of EUR 360 million.
