    The European Commission has developed two parallel approaches to support the implementation of smart urban technologies: the creation of 'lighthouse projects' (large scale demonstration of technology in cities and communities) and 'horizontal activities' to address specific challenges (e.g. regulatory barriers, in standardisation, public procurement and performance monitoring). CITYKEYS project is within the context of these horizontal activities. The mission of CITYKEYS is to develop, and validate, a holistic performance measurement framework for future harmonized and transparent monitoring and comparability of the European cities activities during the implmeatation of Smart City solutions. The work methodology will be based on the following key factors: • Extensive collaboration and communication with European cities. • Establish a baseline by analysis and integration of existing results from previous initiatives. • Develop a set of KPIs specific for Smart Cities initiatives evaluation and comparability • Smart solutions for transparent and open data collection and processing. The tangible objectives of the CITYKEYS project are to: 1) Develop and validate a transparent performance evaluation framework: including KPIs definition, guidelines for data collections, performance system prototype and testing in case-cities. 2) Develop recommendations for the implementation of the performance system into the cities decision-making process and recommendations for the development of new business. 3) Engage stakeholders in identifying and exploiting opportunities for synergy and replicability; and establish a collaboration platform for European cities. The consortium includes 3 multidisciplinary research organizations, 1 cities association and 5 partner cities covering different geographical regions in Europe and different urban realities. In addition to the 5 partner cities, 15 others shown their commitment to join the project stakeholders advisory group.

    URBAN LEARNING gathers capitals and other large cities across Europe facing the common challenge of considerable population growth while being committed to significantly reduce fossil energy consumption and CO2 emissions. E.g. Stockholm grew by more than 12.000 people / a (1.5%); in the next 10 years Vienna has to build for 200.000 new people. Efficient and effective planning processes will be crucial for climbing this mountain. Vienna, Berlin, Paris, Stockholm, Amsterdam/Zaanstad, Warsaw and Zagreb aim to enhance the capacity of their local authorities on integrative urban energy planning, as response to new challenges from EU EPBD and RES directives as well as to changes of technologies and market conditions and the pressure to provide sufficient, affordable homes. The focus is put on the governance processes related to the (re-)development of concrete sites. While some cities already started ambitious urban development projects, the institutionalisation of these experiences is missing - despite awareness and willingness, due to lack of knowledge, lack of time and the need for collaboration across departments, which is not a common practice in many administrations in Europe. External stimulus is needed to overcome these barriers, and to address these issues collectively with external key stakeholders, such as DNOs and energy suppliers, and across cities. Focus will be on multi-disciplinary learning – concentrating on innovative technological solutions, instruments and tools as well as on innovative governance elements - and to capitalise this learning to institutionalise integrative urban energy planning. Improving the governance processes is expected to have significant energy impacts on homes and workplaces to be built and refurbished for over 3 million more people in the participating cities in the next 20 years: more than 1.700 GWh/a of energy savings and over 2.000 GWh/a renewable energy produced. Special emphasis is put on knowledge transfer to 150 more cities.

    Eighty million European citizens face long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairment. The goal of TRIPS is to design, describe and demonstrate practical steps to empower people with disabilities to play a central role in the design of inclusive digital mobility solutions. The consortium brings together pan-European networks of users (ENIL), transport organisations (UITP), assistive technology experts (AAATE) and municipalities to engage in open innovation on mobility. Supported by design methodology experts (TUE), systems integration experts (TB) and privacy experts (TRI) TRIPS will deliver and deploy a Co-design-for-All methodology (WP5) in 7 pilot cities - Lisbon, Zagreb, Bologna, Cagliari, Brussels, Sofia, Stockholm (WP6). TRIPS will conduct research on needs and attitudes towards future mobility solutions (WP2); review the state-of-the-art on accessibility, mobility and related digital and assistive technologies and policies (WP3) and devise an index to measure mobility. We will bring together users and transport experts to discuss institutional barriers to adoption, agree innovation priorities and policy changes (WP4) and co-develop an innovation roadmap and research priorities (WP7). The consortium utilises its international reach to validate outcomes with a wider range of vulnerable-to-exclusion users to ensure that outcomes are relevant to the wider population and transport ecosystem. To achieve this, we reach out to senior citizens and migrant organisations, transport operators, municipalities, assistive technology providers as well as academics and students in design, transport management, and public administration. In doing so, we will address the expected impacts of the call to help (a) regional authorities and businesses in designing digital transport solutions that cater for individual needs and (b) support policy-makers in designing appropriate regulatory frameworks and social and educational strategies.

    SocialCar is an Intelligent Transport System based on an innovative approach to transport demand management, and more specifically to carpooling in urban and peri-urban areas. SocialCar’s main objective is devopping a new communication network for intelligent mobility, sharing information of car-pooling integrated with existing transport and mobility systems. It will be achieved by means of powerful planning algorithms and integration in a liveable environment of big data related to public transport, carpooling and crowdsourcing in order to provide the final user with a simplified travel experience allowing comparison and choice between multiple options/services. SocialCar will take advantage Social Media to communicate, share information and provide the best just-in-time notifications to the travellers. SocialCar will take advantage of the ever growing connectivity of people and objects and the propagation of Internet services, the potential of Future Internet and the availability of GNSS based location and social media to create an integrated mobility service with the potential to sensibly reduce mobility problems of European citizens. SocialCar will capitalise on a strong pan European team with a solid background in social, psychological and economic sciences, the involvement of 10 European urban sites will prove the concepts' validity and business case. SocialCar General Objectives are to: • contribute to the EU2020 targets on energy efficiency and renewable energy sources reducing congestion by improving and maximising connectivity and information in real-time • overcoming the limitations of current carpooling practices moving from long trips to effective urban and peri-urban use • validate green driving support systems, active management based on European GNSS • identify a suitable big data management architecture for integrating mobility data • produce a city-based open integrated mobility repository of public transport and traffic city-based data
