On 30 November 2017, the City of Parma launched the participatory process in the city under the title "Parma Futuro Smart".

The event took place at WoPa - Workout Pasubio, a former industrial complex, promoted by the Municipality of Parma and the Order of Architects of Parma and converted into a socio-cultural center. This workshop represented the beginning of a participatory process that will be developed over the next few years (2017-2018) with semi-annual meetings, in order to work together with all the actors in a smart vision of the city.

The event was introduced by the city Mayor, Federico Pizzaroti, followed by presentations and a series of rountables. Discussions focused on four topics:
> Smart energy and environment,

All partners committed to dedicate required resources and expertise to support the smart project and to define a common ground for a smart model for Parma city. They were also asked to talk about their companies project and solution for a future vision of a smart city and to enable interoperability and easy integration via open interfaces.
