The Digital Cities Action Line leverages the digital transformation of the cities through centralised, participative and collaborative interactions between city actors: government, city service providers, industry, and citizens. This transformation enables the deployment of disruptive information, mobility and safety services in the cities.
Mobility, information and safety are the anchor points for innovations driven by the Action Line. A multidisciplinary approach including service design, urbanism, and social sciences is used to provide an accurate understanding of the concrete problems cities are facing, and the means to overcome these, in particular by developing sustainable business models.
Mature technologies will be used to allow a quick deployment on the market for new services addressing the problems identified by cities regarding the challenges explained above. These will have to provide clear differentiators and to allow iterative improvement of user experience. To take commercial positions quickly, they need to be ready to be placed on the market as beta versions.
