Operating since Jan. 2015, the cluster comprises more than 120 members, private companies and institutions representing the quadruple helix: Public Administration, SMEs and Companies, Universities and Research Centers, Professional Associations, Cities and Citizens. SCC members cooperate and work together to make regions, cities and rural areas smarter, by being efficient, sustainable and comfortable through the Direct Communication/Lobby of the cluster with city councils and public administration to incorporate and test technologies developed on the smart city sector.

-Democratizing innovation and R&D related to Smart Cities by means of collaboration with other universities, research centers and clusters to improve regions, cities and rural areas.
-Being a place to exchange knowledge among companies, public administration and cities.
In 2019 SCC published a Technical and Market Study on Precision Agriculture and its Environmental Impact.
