Program EkoSMART introduces universal architecture of the smart city through which it aims to create the conditions for sustainable, safe and quality lives for city dwellers. The main objective of the program is to develop a smart city ecosystem with all the support mechanisms that are necessary for efficient, optimized and gradual integration of different areas into a unified and well connected system. It focuses on three key smart cities pillars: health, active life and mobility. It is also strategically linked with municipalities and other important domains (e.g. energy sector, smart buildings, citizen involvement and engagement, smart communities).

In terms of economy, the vision of the EkoSmart program is to launch Slovenian solutions in the field of smart cities on the world market. The realization of this vision is based on several major approaches: concentration of knowledge and experience, focus on the user, evolutionary development, and flexible architecture.
