Goals of the workshop
EIT ICT Labs has defined a Strategic Innovation Agenda (SIA) that will guide the development in 2015/2016. During this period, Urban Life and Mobility action line will focus on
- integrated mobility services, deploying mobility market place concept, alternative transports and alternative solutions to physical mobility in Europe, and
- citizen engagement and empowerment, leveraging on collaborative behaviours, revitalizing individuals in active and sharing-oriented citizens.
We look forward to a wide deployment of mature technologies handled by EIT ICT Labs members, for a massive adoption within the urban ecosystem of urban platform and services in selected cities or territories. Scaling-up of projects, designing of massive services are necessary to allow the emergence and the validation of business models on deployed urban services. This approach seems to us very convergent with the objectives and with on-going project of many territorial governance bodies (municipalities, conurbations, living areas, regions…).
That’s why we would like to build a collaborative view on possible future activities, that might lead to associate strongly territories and EIT ICT Labs to reach shared innovation and economic development objectives. In this view EIT ICT Labs can provide cities and regions with the capability to boost existing territorial dynamic toward a full-scale deployment of new services, leading to the emergence of new citizen behaviours. This will be done with the help of technologies and skills from state-of-art European large companies, small & medium enterprises and start-ups, as well as with complementary funding of European Union.
