To carry out its research, awareness, training and coaching activities, the Smart City Institute (SCI) can count on the support of its partners. The SCI is based on an original partnership between a University (ULiège) and its School of Management (HEC Liège), private companies and the Walloon Region. SCI is also involved in various European projects.

The Walloon Region actively supports the institute under its Digital Wallonia program, and more specifically through its "Smart Region" axis, which acts as a support framework to strengthen the coherence, acceleration and visibility of Smart City projects carried out at the scale of the 262 Walloon cities and municipalities. As part of this dynamic, the SCI has been acting as the official academic reference for the “Smart Region” since 2016.
