How can European cities take full advantage of the large amount of data generated at local level? Striving towards a data ecosystem for climate-neutral and smart communities, the workshop participants discussed how to facilitate data sharing in an interoperable and trusted smart city dataspace.
Smart Mobility & Living (Unit H.5)
During this stakeholder workshop the specificities of the local data ecosystem for climate-neutral and smart communities, as part of the common European Green Deal dataspace, will be discussed, as well as other relevant dataspaces for smart cities.
The cities of Copenhagen, Helsinki, Amsterdam, Paris, Tallinn and Stavanger invite innovators/companies to submit offers for their AI4CITIES pre-commercial procurement. This aims to develop breakthrough AI solutions - in combination with other enabling technologies such as big data application, 5G, edge computing and IoT - to accelerate the Cities' transition to carbon neutrality, in particular for smart mobility and energy. Deadline for submission of offers: 28/2/2021
The first online meeting with supporters of the Living-in.EU (LI.EU) movement took place on 22 October 2020. Supporters of the movement coming from a range of organisations across the EU (NGOs, research institutes, companies and associations) were briefed on the progress to date in implementing the commitments of the “Join, Boost, Sustain” Declaration, and discussed ideas on how they can contribute to the LI.EU movement.
The first digital edition of SEMIC, the annual semantic interoperability conference, will take place online and the theme will be "Sustainable Data Services".
The first City Lab marks the official start of the 100 Intelligent Cities Challenge programme. Join this event with high-level keynote speakers from the OECD, European Commission, World Economic Forum and United Nations. Over five afternoons, you can participate to a series of online events, which will offer participating cities the chance to network and further explore the themes of the challenge.
ETSI releases four new extensions to add to its SAREF (Smart Appliances REFerence) ontology in the automotive, eHealth, ageing-well, wearable, and water domains.
Vehicle safety used to be measured in seatbelts and airbags. The emergence of highly networked vehicles means updating our safety parameters, and the SAFERtec project is showing us how.
Three challenges with collaborating partners during this rather exceptional year of 2020; three Sessions will reflect on the main theme of the conference "Connecting people and technology towards a citizen centered digital future".
The aim of the European Catalogue of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Water Standards and Specifications is to support the Action Plan for Water Services in the context of the Digital Single Market as well as the Rolling Plan of the European Commission for digitalisation of the water management.
The European Location Interoperability Solutions for eGovernment (ELISE) action aims to enable digital government through geospatial data and location intelligence. It is a package of legal, policy, organisational, semantic and technical interoperability solutions that aim to facilitate more efficient and effective digital cross-sector interaction and data re-use.
A group of European experts have recently discussed how to pursue the Commission’s ambition in building a common European smart communities’ data space on the European federated cloud infrastructure.
About 40 cities and community representatives as well as 20 colleagues from the European institutions met (online) for the second time on 18 June. Eddy Hartog from the European Commission chaired the meeting.
As the Future of Cities report (2019) recognises that ‘cities will increasingly apply new technologies and innovation across a wide range of sectors, from transport and mobility to citizen engagement’, the first webinar of COP-CITIES in 2020 will focus on the digital transformation of cities and in particular on how to scale up digital solutions in smart cities and communities.
Following the first year of activity of the Community of Practice on Cities (CoP-CITIES), the publication of the Future of Cities report and its supporting knowledge base, the first event of COP-CITIES held on 26 May 2020 focused on the digital transformation of cities and communities.
Recent growth in computing power, availability of data and progress in algorithms have turned Artificial Intelligence (AI) into one of the most strategic technologies of the 21st century. The European Commission has been working with Member States through a coordinated approach, to create a European framework for developing and using AI for ‘good and for all’. An important element of the European AI Strategy and Coordinated plan is to increase efforts for the take-up of ethical, human-centric and secure AI in areas of public interest.
Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) have and important role in accelerating the take-up of Artificial Intelligence (AI) by helping public administrations identify necessary datasets, develop algorithms, train AI and link to computing facilities, building on the “AI-on on-demand” platform.
This webinar aimed at bringing together Digital Innovation Hubs(DIHs), Living Labs, City Labs, Policy Labs as well as cities and municipalities to share good practices for helping cities develop their digital strategies, establish the foundations of their smart city and start developing concrete services.
Taking the momentum of the European Commission launching the new EU growth strategy, the European Green Deal, over 120 project representatives and policymakers gathered at the Workshop “Innovative services and products for the circular economy” organised by EASME in Brussels. This workshop gathered important insights to feed the current policymaking, days before the publication of the new Circular Economy Action plan and the New Industrial Strategy for Europe.
Water is key for society and for the economy. We need to address the pressing water challenges, adapt water resource management to mitigate the effects of climate change, combat resource pollution and depletion, manage demands for water, address the water–energy nexus, and prevent degradation of ecosystems. Digital solutions can play a vital role in addressing some of these challenges. This CORDIS Results Pack highlights 12 projects funded under the Horizon 2020 programme and showcases their innovative ICT solutions.
