Abstract. The paper presents the application of an islands’ smartification and sustainability index the Smart Sustainable Islands Index or S2I2. In addition to the classic parameters, the index is designed to include and emphasize specific parameters of the islands that are not usually found or they are less important in a mainland city. The structure and parameters of the index are presented and compared to other initiatives A database with a corresponding web page has been created in order to collect data from the islands for their index calculation. The database structure and relationships are presented, as well as, the user interaction and data collection forms. After the online system finalization, each island in Greece, Europe, or in the World will have the possibility to submit the required information & data and will be able to see the graphic representation of the results and the rank of the island in terms of smartification and sustainability. The fully functioning system is expected to support significantly an islands’ effort for a smarter, greener & sustainable development.
