City Criteria 2010-2011

The criteria for the Contactless and NFC City League are chosen carefully to give a balanced view of the status of each league entry. The scoring scenario is based on 17 factors describing the scope of the projects implemented in each city. Additionally, we have added two special categories: A Green Credentials criteria to reflect the on going consideration to reduce the carbon footprint through the use of contactless and NFC technology as well as a criteria for social equality /inclusion.
