Intelligent Cities Challenge
The 100 Intelligent Cities Challenge is programme by the European Commission supporting cities to leverage advanced technologies, to tackle the pandemic crisis and reconstruct their economies while steering them in the direction of green smart sustainable growth. It will help cities to improve the quality of life and create new opportunities for their business communities.
This transformative citizen-centred project is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon Europe programme. It will launch 100 tech pilots addressing the needs of cities and communities through co-creation and co-learning processes. The project builds on recognized European and national innovation programmes, methods, living labs, and platforms. CommuniCity is working together with companies, tech providers and citizens to develop solutions to overcome digital and urban challenges.
CyberSec4Europe is a research-based consortium with 44 participants covering 21 EU Member States and Associated Countries. As a pilot for a Cybersecurity Competence Network, it will test and demonstrate potential governance structures for the network of competence centres using the best practices examples from the expertise and experience of the participants.
dRural‘s overall goal is to co-develop and implement a digital solution that delivers multiple services to rural citizens while creating opportunities economic growth and quality of life improvements. Then, to ensure the successful exploitation and sustainability after the project’s lifetime and its replication in other European territories. As such, our aspiration is to become the service marketplace of reference for European rural areas.
The Data Space for Smart Cities and Communities is a preparatory action funded by the Digital Europe programme to create the blueprint of a data space. Together with our partners, we work in close collaboration with our stakeholders from both the supply and demand side across sectors and domains to gather input for the governance scheme, catalogue of specifications, a cookbook, and a roadmap to realise the data space.
The DyMoN project will enrich digital nudging for more sustainable mobility behaviour with data sources. For example, the situational component is often crucial in nudging (i.e., in which situation a nudge reaches a person). For DyMoN, data such as weather data, environmental data, infrastructure data, or traffic data will be used. This data will be processed in the DyMoN Data Hub and will be linked to the nudging methods. By taking into account the situational components within a city, effective nudges will be designed within the DyMoN framework.
Living-in.EU is for a cohesive, digital Europe where every city and community can enjoy the economic and social benefits of digital transformation. Go Li.EU will support and accelerate the European way of digital transformation by coordinating and further enhancing strong multi-level governance cooperation in the EU to develop, (re-)use and share trustworthy solutions, technology and standards. To make this possible, Go Li.EU will ensure effective governance and growth of the Living-in.EU community, to include all ecosystem players, ensuring cooperation among them and with other EU initiatives.
NetZeroCities is part of the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme in support of European Union’s Green Deal. NetZeroCities has been designed to help cities overcome the current structural, institutional and cultural barriers they face in order to achieve climate neutrality by 2030. NetZeroCities will support the EU’s Mission of “100 Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities by 2030” newly-launched as part of the Horizon Europe programme. The project will work as a service-oriented platform supported by world-class practitioners. It will help European cities by providing them with the support and solutions they need to achieve their Net Zero goal in a socially inclusive way.
“Collaborative, Secure, and Replicable Open Source Data Lakes for Smart Cities” (ODALA) is a strategic project to improve data management in cities. European Cities and regions from five different countries together with a cluster of private companies and research institutes will leverage open source technologies and digital transformation.
Relying on European common standards, the EU-funded OMEGA-X (Orchestrating an interoperable sovereign federated Multi-vector Energy Data Space built on open standards and ready for GAia-X) project aims to implement an energy data space. This will include federated infrastructure, data marketplace and service marketplace, involving data sharing between different stakeholders and demonstrating its value for concrete energy use cases while guaranteeing scalability and interoperability with other data space initiatives. OMEGA-X will develop an Energy Data Space that enables multiple actors sharing data and services while ensuring privacy, security and sovereignty. This will specifically address the current problem of low availability of data for innovative uses in the energy sector and beyond.
Pre-PAI will provide the blueprint for the further development, deployment, and operation of the European AI-on-demand platform. The project will carry out a comprehensive requirement analysis for different stakeholder groups, mainly SMEs, industrial sectors, and public administration. These requirements analyses will lead to an overall roadmap and plan to build and consolidate the AI-on-demand platform. It includes a comprehensive concept to provide trustworthy AI assets into the platform to support European leadership on trustworthy AI and to offer AI “Made in Europe”.
OASC takes part in international fora and expert groups
OASC leads the work on the technical commitment of the ‘LI.EU declaration and supports the commitment on ‘Measuring & Monitoring’.
The main objective of this task force is to produce a conformance test suite for this NGSI-LD API specification (OASC MIM1) and a testing environment to execute and validate the test cases.
