Major Cities of Europe is a not-for-profit membership organisation.

LOLA (Linked Organisation of Local Authority ICT Societies “LOLA”) is a non-profit organisation of ICT professional associations. These associations comprise professionals who work in local authority and other local public service delivery organisations, and their suppliers, in different countries worldwide.
LOLA will work collectively and collaboratively to achieve benefits to these organisations, their members and the citizens they serve.
Our core values are based on our desire to provide a high standard of local authority services to our citizens through the effective deployment of Information and Communications Technologies. We intend to achieve this through joint projects, sharing of good practice, products and services, joint influencing of national governments, and engaging the ICT supply industry.
We aim to make a significant contribution to the development of European and/or international ICT standards, codes of good practice, cross national projects coordination and potentially drawing on National and European funding to achieve these objectives. Similar opportunities outside Europe will also be exploited.
