The S2MovingCity project will make use of an unique vehicular and sensing infrastructure to focus on providing the city of Porto with a more effective solution to support planning and city-wide management, in order to improve the city comfort on city dwellers (transportation, persons and institutions). S2MovingCity proposes to deliver new knowledge and a proof of concept for massive urban sensing of people, vehicles, and environment, supporting data-driven city planning and decision making
The focus of the SmartImpact project is cities, people and the promotion of smart, sustainable development. The network is supported by the Fraunhofer Institute, a leading research group and authority on smart cities. Along with development of a model for smart cities, the ten partners are working to develop action plans to make their own cities smarter. SmartImpact aims to explore and develop innovation management tools for municipalities, which are needed to finance, build, manage, operate and maintain smart city solutions.
The SynchroniCity project is an ambitious initiative to deliver a digital single market for IoT-enabled urban services, in Europe and beyond. By piloting services at scale in reference zones across eight European cities, involving also other cities globally, the SynchroniCity project addresses how to incentivise and build trust for companies and citizens to actively participate. The goal is to deliver common, co-created IoT-enabled urban services that meet citizen needs in a global market, and to create an environment of evidence-based solutions that can easily be used in other regions.
The GrowSmarter project brings together cities and industry to integrate and demonstrate twelve smart city solutions in energy, infrastructure and transport, to provide other cities with valuable insights on how they work in practice and opportunities for replication. These solutions are integrated in specially chosen sites making demonstration easy to reach and take part of for the follower cities and other European and international study groups. The idea is to create a ready market for these smart solutions to support growth and the transition to a smart, sustainable Europe.
