City Profile / Needs

About City / Region: Antalya is the fifth-most populous city in Turkey. 

Ongoing Projects: Antalya is LHC in MATCHUP project, has potential on a lot of areas: tourism, agriculture, industry, renewable energy.​​​​​​​ There is high acceptance within society for new implementation (in most of the districts).​​​​​​​

Main Challenges: 

  • They look forward being part of any project (leading or following city) because municipalities could not make it smart city implementations within internal budgets. There is allocated internal budget for SC activities, mostly for urban reslience/disaster systems.​​​​​​​ 
  • They have SECAP, SEAP but they could not prepare SUMP plan due to they need international experts involved to it. They are also struggling with urban mobility due to Russian + Ukranien refugees in the city so they joined to EIT moiblity and won a project starting from August.​​​​​​​
  • General problems: finding target group to partner for projects, following the fundings

Possible Areas of Collaboration: Preparing SUMP
